A MAN who works in Basingstoke is set to complete a 24 mile trek to raise funds for charity.

In a bit to raise funds for charity Marie Curie, Multitone Electronics employee Rob Fuller has set himself a goal, which is to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge this June.

Rob is no stranger to these trekking adventures. In 2014 he successfully completed the National Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the highest summits of Scotland, England and Wales in one attempt, namely Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales.

This year’s Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is a 24-mile trek and takes on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in that order, and in under 12 hours.

Rob is not taking on the challenge alone, though. He will walk together with two former colleagues of Multitone.

Rob, who works in Basingstoke but lives in Essex, said: “Marie Curie provides amazing support for end-of-life care and I've known people who experienced their excellent services, some of whom are sadly no longer with us.

“I have been doing lots of long-distance walks of 10 or more miles, and completed a 20-mile Challenge Walk in the Yorkshire Wolds in 6.5 hours two weeks ago, as well as another 26-mile walk in the Peak District in May.

“I am really looking forward to the challenge, meeting up with other walkers during the hike and of course enjoying the fantastic scenery.”

Multitone’s sales and marketing director, Peter Lomax, said: “Rob’s latest challenge is an inspiration to all of us here at Multitone. We wish him the very best of luck for the walk in June.”
