Intrepid trio take to the hills for Breast Cancer Care
Three adventurous members of the HiQ fast fit network are taking to the hills to help the company hit its £100,000 fundraising target for Breast Cancer Care.
Franchisee Chris Kisby, marketing manager Emma-Jane Kisby and Claire Murray - a father and daughters team from Easy Tyre & Autocentres in the Midlands, HiQ's largest franchise partner - are setting off to complete the National Three Peaks Challenge from the 18th to 20th October, as part of HiQ's Project Pink fundraising efforts.
The challenge will see the intrepid trio trek the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon over three days, climbing for over 15 hours and driving 11 hours from peak to peak for Pink October.
Emma-Jane said: "This is not going to be an easy challenge, but we are very excited at the prospect of raising a target of £2,500 for Breast Cancer Care. We've all been training hard to make sure we're geared up for the challenge and can't wait to get started"
Chris, Emma-Jane and Claire have been strong supporters of HiQ's Project Pink from its inception three years ago. With over 20 HiQ centres spanning from Alfreton down to Dunstable, each promoting the fundraising efforts in-branch, the team has raised thousands of pounds for the charity so far.
HiQ's marketing manager Geraldine McGovern said: "Chris, Emma-Jane, Claire and all of the HiQ staff across the Midlands have done a fantastic fundraising job so far, and the lengths that they're going to keep that total rising is truly inspiring! We can't wait to cheer them on as take on the Three Peaks to help us hit our £100,000 target!"
Along with the Three Peak Challenge, HiQ centres all over the UK will be bag packing, cake baking, raffling and tin shaking to help reach the fast fit network's fundraising target.

Winter tyres may seem like an extra and perhaps unnecessary expense to UK residents as we do not usually suffer the extreme temperatures and weather conditions as other countries, such as Germany, where it is a legal requirement to switch to winter tyres when seasons change.
Did you know battery faults are a common cause of breakdown? Furthermore, when cold weather hits, your battery is more likely to fail. HiQ Easy Tyre & Autocentres have put together some helpful advice for looking after your battery this winter and decrease your chance of having a car related breakdown or problem.
