At Building Relations, we are always up for getting stuck in and trying new challenges. This summer the team will be taking this one step further, lacing up their hiking boots and tackling the Housebuilder Challenge: a 34km hike in the Brecon Beacons, attempting 10 peaks in 10 hours with an ascent of 1695m.

On the team are Account Managers Nicola, Harriet, Hollie and Emily, alongside Account Executives Ettienne and Niamh. Over the next two months they will be training hard, breaking in their walking boots and sharpening up their map reading skills before the big day in July.

The team’s training began just over a week ago, with walks taking place in the countryside, the capital and on the coast.

This rocky adventure is all for a good cause, helping to raise money for Youth Adventure Trust, a youth development charity working with vulnerable 11–15-year-olds to build resilience to face the challenges in their lives. The charity has been vital in ensuring the wellbeing of vulnerable children throughout the pandemic, delivering services through remote platforms.

The team will be posting regular updates across all of the Building Relations social media pages over the coming weeks, so make sure to keep an eye out to see how they are getting on.
