Talisker Whiskey Challenge
GES are pleased to have been involved in the sponsorship of the Bolton Atlantic Challenge, raising money for the charity Bolton Lads and Girls Club Junior Mentoring Project.
The Talisker Whiskey Challenge is an event designed to test the endurance limits of all those involved. The four man team, including Nick Griffiths, a BUPA Facilities Manager, set off from San Sebastian de la Gomera in the Canary Islands and rowed across the mid-Atlantic to Antigua. They managed to complete the 3000 mile feat in seven weeks.
On his return Nick said “This has been the toughest thing I have ever done. Perhaps not physically (although it was hard) but mentally it was very difficult, living in such a small space with 3 other men for 59 days in such isolation was as I said very tough.
I’d like to thank Paul and GES Security for not only their sponsorship but also their support and interest in the race, without which I would never have made the starting line. The backing and encouragement we have received has been very humbling. We have managed to raise a huge amount of money for the charity Bolton Lads and Girls Club Junior Mentoring Project, the last tally was in the region of £200,000. This is collectively a great effort and I’d like to thank GES once again for their generous support.”
GES congratulates all of the team on successfully completing the challenge. Click here for more information on the Bolton Atlantic Challenge.
