A CHEQUE for more than £5,100 has been handed over to charity.

Richard Clark, David Bower, Tony Dewey, Tom Little and Luke Enderwick, who all work at Bourne Textile Services, scaled the Three Peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in June.

The team decided to support the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and this week they handed over a cheque for £5,134 to Vivienne Chambers representing the charity.

Richard said: “If we hadn’t raised £5,000 I think we would have been disappointed.

“The air ambulance representative was pleasantly surprised by what we raised.”

Richard said the challenge itself was hard work but that the team’s morale kept them all going.

He said: “We had read about some climbs that had to be cancelled but we were really lucky with the weather.

“We got delayed by the Olympic torch in Scotland but it all went to plan.”

He thanked everyone who supported and sponsored the group.
