GWE (Team Extreme) conquer the Alps!

GWE conquer the Alps

A group of seven took part in the Hannibal Challenge this weekend raising around £2500 for the Fredericks Foundation.

The Hannibal Challenge is a gruelling 2 day walk in the Alps walking up to 75km across extremely rough terrain.  87 people took part including GWE Express which was led by Julie Cromwell from Great Western Enterprises.  The team consisted of friends, colleagues and clients

“It was one of the most gruelling things many of us have ever done but we made it in one piece and raised a lot of money and awareness for an excellent charity”


The Fredericks Foundaiton was set up similar to the Princess Trust without an age restriction to help privide finance and support to people who want to start a business who would otherwise be unable to do so.  Many of these people are extremely low income, single parents or have disabilities perhaps as a result of an accident that mean they need to re-think their careers.  The team itself consisted of some local businesses who want to encourage other people to start a business and we also were given sponsorship from the following local businesses who we would like to say a special thank you to

Great Western Enterprises, Swindon
Total Life Solutions, Trowbridge
24-7 Staffing, Chippenham
Mobile Care Agency, Melksham
Wessex Association Chambers of Commerce, Trowbridge
Chippenham MOT Centre, Chippenham
Thomas & Cosh, Chippenham
Sheard & Hudson
Dune Data and Cabling, Trowbridge
Ttamar Science Park
