Peak practice for Jeremy

A Shropshire businessman has given himself an enormous challenge in a bid to raise money for a local children's charity.

Jeremy Rose, who runs Ocean Telecom on Mile Oak Industrial Estate in Oswestry will be taking on the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ in May this year to raise money for charity The Movement Centre, which provides life changing therapy to improve movement control in children who have a disability.

Jeremy felt inspired to raise money for The Movement Centre after visiting the charity at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt hospital last year.

Jeremy said: “After visiting The Movement Centre and seeing them in action and meeting a young child who goes to the charity to receive Targeted Training therapy, I was so impressed that I wanted to do something to contribute to the fantastic work going on there.”

The Movement Centre, founded in Oswestry treats up to 60 children each year from all over the UK through a 12-month intensive course of Targeted Training therapy. The Movement Centre is the only provider of Targeted Training, which helps children who have a movement disability to gain control of their movement, which makes them far more independent. 

Three members of the Ocean Telecom team, Robin Talbot, Chris Spriggs and Sean Bolas will be joining Jeremy on the challenge which will see them scale the three highest mountains in the UK. Starting in Fort William, the team will climb Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak in around five hours, before driving almost six hours to Scafell Pike in the Lake District. The last leg of the journey will be to Snowdon in North Wales, where the team have been carrying out regular training.

Although Jeremy has completed the Three Peaks once before, the team accompanying him vary in experience when it comes to mountaineering but are determined to complete the gruelling physical and mental challenge in 24 hours.

The team started their training in February and have already climbed Snowdon twice in very icy conditions.

Anyone wishing to donate, should visit Jeremy’s Just Giving page. 100% of the donations will go to The Movement Centre as the cost of the challenge is funded by Ocean Telecom.
