Three Peaks 2015MORE than 100 members of staff from JCT600 climbed 5,000ft as part of the company’s annual Three Peaks challenge event, which this year is raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

A team from the Yorkshire-based car retailer, comprising directors, management and colleagues from JCT600’s Bradford head office as well as from most of the company’s 50 dealerships, completed the 24-mile walk which starts in Horton-in-Ribblesdale before scaling the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, said: ‘Having undertaken this gruelling walk up the county’s three highest peaks for the last five years, we know what to expect, but it’s always a challenge.

‘Fortunately, with our dealerships spread from Yorkshire and the North East to Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, it’s also a great opportunity to bring colleagues together.

‘There’s always plenty of friendly rivalry, but everyone is united in wanting to raise funds for our chosen charity of the year.

‘Once again, the team has pulled out all the stops with an amazing range of fundraising stunts for Alzheimer’s Society throughout the year. We’ve already raised over £30,000 for the charity and we hope to raise even more over the next five months.’

Alzheimer’s Society is the leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers.

With its head office in Bradford, the JCT600 group is a family business with 50 dealerships selling brands such as Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW/MINI, Ferrari and Volkswagen. The company now employs 2,000 people.
