Careys plc take on the 3 Peaks!
In September, seven intrepid individuals from Careys Plc will be reaching for the sky – by taking on the 3 Peaks Challenge and trying their hardest to raise a whopping £4,000 in support of Brent Wandsworth and Westminster Mind. We spoke to Alanha Dunbar, Community Liason Officer at Careys, about the forthcoming challenge.

Why did you chose BWW Mind?
One of our teammates thought it would be a good idea for our project to participate in the 3 Peaks Challenge. That immediately turned into a charity challenge, since we are always looking for new and creative ways to engage and support our projects’ local communities. When selecting a charity, we wanted to focus on supporting a charity that aids people with mental health issues. Mental health problems affect 1 in 6 construction workers at any given time and our industry has the highest rate of suicide of any industry, so mental health is very close to all of us. Therefore, selecting Mind was an easy choice, especially narrowing it down to our project’s local Westminster community. Keeping it local makes us feel like we can have the most impact on our community.
About Our Team
We come from different age ranges and backgrounds and job departments (engineering, project management, public relations, quality surveying), but we share a commonality of working in the construction industry and having a desire to support mental health initiatives. We also all obviously enjoy a challenge!
We wish the team the very best of luck in both their fundraising and in their challenge to reach the peaks of Scafell Pike, Snowdon and Ben Nevis.
