  A local electrical company based in Enfield are set to take part in the challenge of their lives, climbing the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis. On Saturday 20 June, eight members of staff from Thornton Electrical will be spilt into two teams to complete this mammoth feat. The teams will start off by climbing Ben Nevis, following a 25 miles cycle through stunning Highland landscapes and then canoeing a 3 km course on Loch Lochy. The challenge will culminate will a 10 mile cycle back to the finish line. Stephen Stanyer, director of Thornton Electrical said “We enjoy new challenges and as we completed the London to Paris Bike ride last year for the North London Hospice we thought we could incorporate cycling, which is our first passion, with walking and canoeing to really test ourselves. We have most of our staff competing this challenge forming two teams, so you could call this a team building exercise too. “We have cycled in Cambridgeshire and Potters Bar working on distance and hills. We have also walked up Mt Snowdonia acclimatising ourselves to the interchangeable weather conditions, the mountainous terrain on Snowdon can become challenging with steep gradients really working our leg muscles. We know it will be tough but we are really excited about this challenge.” To sponsor and donate go to: https://www.justgiving.com/Thornton-electrical
