Advanced Maintenance UK Ltd is always happy to support our staff, contractors and customers with their charity fundraising efforts. This week we are proud to of sponsored two great fundraising teams;
Tony, Michael, Sam, Mark and Dan are attempting the three peaks challenge on 2nd September 2016 to raise money for Headway. Their challenge involves climbing up and down the three biggest mountains in the UK within 24 hours. It is a huge task both physically and mentally, but one they are determined to achieve in memory of Robbie Brooker.
UPDATE - From the Teams Justgiving page: "After lots of blood, sweat and endless amounts of RAIN(!) we completed the three peaks challenge. We just missed out on the 24 hour deadline due to some very difficult challenges along the way but completed it in 25 hours following a humongous effort from all of us. You'll be glad to know that we gave everything we had and went through many physical and mental pain barriers to finish as quick as we could. A huge thank you to everyone who's supported and donated, it sounds cliche but it 100% made a difference and kept us going."
Well done guys from everyone here at Advanced Maintenance UK Ltd and huge congratulations for raising £5020.00 (on the Justgiving Page only as of 11:36 08/09/2016) for Headway. If you would like to make a donation or follow the team's journey please CLICK HERE.

Mr. Dougy Hill from Sparsholt College has challenged himself to do as many press-ups as possible in 22 seconds for 22 days to raise money for Combat Stress. Each day there will be different contractors supporting the 22 seconds.
UPDATE - From the Dougie's Justgiving page: "Today was the last day of the 22 and it's been a pleasure raising money for such a great cause. I can't thank you all enough for the support. Some people have donated as anonymous so a Hugh thank you to all of you. We have done what we wanted to do and hit over £2.500 when all the money is in that's fantastic."
