It may be May, but there’s still snow on summits. Staff from Incentive FM completed the Twin Peaks Challenge this week. The facilities management company walkers overcame aching limbs and painful blisters to raise £7,000 for charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers during the 24-hour challenge.
The team – Bruce McDonnell, Mark Stevens, Glenn Wilson, Claire Rumsey, Steve Alderson, Susan Louwerse, Sheryl Inman, Andy Robbins, Adam Cross, Annie Karastoyanova and Ben Punter – climbed 3,220ft to reach the summit of Scafell Pike in the Lake District. They came down again to drive north to Fort William to scale Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK at 4,412ft.
Bruce McDonnell, Managing Director at Incentive FM, said after:
“Huge congratulations to our energetic team who battled cold conditions to climb these two mountains either side of a long 25-hour drive to the Scottish Highlands. We have raised a substantial amount of money for a fantastic and worthwhile cause, which will make a huge difference to those who have lost parents in tragic circumstances.”

Incentive FM’s annual Charity Ball has raised over £12,000 for its chosen charities, Scotty’s Little Soldiers and Cash for Kids.
Held last week in Sheffield at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Sheffield Park, the event attracted around 200 guests from the facilities management sector and wider business community.
The ball, now in its fifth consecutive year, was hosted by Incentive FM and included a blind and silent charity auction, raffle, three-course meal, magician, and live entertainment.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting bereaved children who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces and Cash for Kids works to provide underprivileged and sick children in local communities with a brighter future.
Glenn Wilson, Operations Director at Incentive FM Limited, said:
“This is the fifth year that we have hosted the Ball and we are thrilled with how successful it continues to be and gives us great pride to support out two chosen charities, who are close to everyone’s heart at Incentive, so it’s great to contribute to such worthy causes.”
