Openreach Volunteers Conquer Welsh Three Peaks, Raise £1000 for Wales Air Ambulance

A dedicated team of Openreach volunteers, known for their expertise in fiber connectivity, recently undertook a remarkable challenge, trading their tools for hiking boots to complete a unique Three Peaks Challenge in Wales. This arduous expedition involved conquering Wales’s three highest peaks—Yr Wyddfa, Cadair Idris, and Pen y Fan. With over 30 engineers from across Wales participating, they collectively ascended more than 3,000 meters.

The primary objective of this extraordinary feat was to raise funds in support of the Wales Air Ambulance, a charitable organization that provides critical emergency medical services. Every step taken by these Openreach volunteers was driven by the noble cause of saving lives and delivering vital emergency care throughout the region.

Shaun White, Senior Area Manager for Wales at Openreach, expressed immense pride in the team’s accomplishment, stating, “Wales Air Ambulance provides an invaluable service to the people of Wales, and as an organization, we’re delighted to contribute to such a great cause. This event not only allowed us to raise funds but also provided an opportunity for our team to come together outside of work and experience the incredible beauty of Wales.”

Colleagues, friends, and family rallied behind the Openreach volunteers, contributing more than £1000 in support of their cause. Further donations are welcomed here.

Laura Coyne, Wales Air Ambulance Community Fundraiser, expressed her gratitude, saying, “We are truly grateful to the members of Openreach in Wales who chose to support us and take on this challenge. To climb three mountains in one day is no small task, and we thank all of those who participated and raised vital funds for our service. Your tremendous donation will enable us to continue serving the people of Wales and saving lives, whether by air or by road. Diolch yn fawr.”

The funds raised will directly benefit the air ambulance service, enabling them to maintain their essential work of providing rapid response and emergency medical care throughout Wales.
