Always keen to do a little something for charity, Vision One directors Jas Gidda and Tony Lewis go outside their comfort zone to take on a new challenge this summer - climbing 24 Peaks in 24 hours

The demanding two day event will involve 50 km of hill walking, climbing England's highest mountain and conquering 24 of some of the most challenging peaks in the beautiful Lake District National Park (Cumbria). The challenge includes summiting renowned peaks such as; Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, Great Gable.

The climb starts on the 24th June and is being done in aid of several charities, including; Cancer Research, The Royal British Legion and the Unique Home. The 24 Peaks in 24 hours challenge follows a well know itinerary which is broadly as follows.
