May 2014 – Team GCP are taking on the ultimate charity challenge for Save the Children

Team GCP to take on the ultimate charity challenge

Four members of GCP have taken on the prestigious Spayne Lindsay Charity Challenge which will see them hike, bike and canoe in and around the mountains of the Lake District to raise funds for Save the Children.

James Blake, Ravi Monteiro, Richard Shaw and Alex Thompson, collectively “The Fabulous Baco Boys”, have all embarked on a punishing training regime for the event which takes place on the 7th June.

The challenge involves:

Hiking in the mountains for 12km (including a 1000m vertical climb)
Canoeing for 11km on very cold water
Biking on and off-road for 45km

And they have to read a map into the bargain!
