Graduate Challenge 2023

They’ve done it! Our graduates have officially completed their 2023 challenge; 24 Peaks in 24 Hours.

Each year, graduates from across the company push themselves to their limits to raise money for a chosen charity. This year’s group decided to battle the elements and conquer 24 peaks over two days in the Lake District, ascending 4264 meters, to raise money for their chosen charity, Standing Tall.

Standing Tall helps the homeless secure stable jobs and safe homes, 80% of the people they help are still off the streets and in the same job one year later. The funds raised by the graduates will support the charity in achieving its 2023 goal of helping 100 people move away from the streets for good.

Congratulations to all the graduates who took part for smashing their initial fundraising target of £12,000 by raising an astounding £13,325!

Georgia Williams, the London Talent Scout at Standing Tall, said:

A big thank you to all the graduates who completed the challenge – you guys are amazing! The money raised will make a significant impact in helping more people, move away from experiencing homelessness, for good. We also have exciting plans to expand Standing Tall next year – starting to operate in a few new cities. The money you guys have raised will help us do this. Thank you to everyone who donated, we are so thankful!
