Abbey Logistics HGV technician conquers challenge for charity

Matthew McCrudden, an HGV technician based in Abbey’s Middlewich depot, completed the tough Three Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours.

Matthew took on the challenge, as part of a team of eight, to raise money for A Stroke of Luck, a charity offering advice and access to exercise-based stroke recovery.
The challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in Britain, totalling 26 miles of walking and 3,407 metres of climbing, in 24 hours. The team tackled Ben Nevis first, the tallest of the peaks, followed by Scafell Pike and finally reaching Snowdon in North Wales.
After successfully completing the Three Peaks Challenge, Matthew said; “The climb was incredibly tough at times, but we were motivated by knowing the donations were rolling in and we were all making a difference to each of the charities we were supporting.
“I’m very grateful to the fantastic team who climbed with me and to everyone who has donated to help support the amazing work A Stroke of Luck are doing to help stroke survivors on their road to recovery.”
