The Warwick chief executive of Baxi, one of the largest suppliers of hot water systems in Europe, joined some 52 other members of staff in climbing 3,200 feet up Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.
David Pinder said volunteers for the fundraising hike, who raised £10,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, came from not only the Warwick headquarters but Baxi bases throughout the UK.
A sales manager in the south west of England even tackled the trek with a boiler strapped to his back.
Mr Pinder said: “It was great to see so many employees from across the country get involved and help us to raise such a considerable sum for our charity partner.
“Marie Curie is a fantastic charity that provides high quality nursing care and emotional support to people with terminal illness, in their own homes or in one of its nine hospices.
“As a business, we feel very passionate about helping this important cause and still have lots more fundraiser events in the pipeline.”
