5 Men. 3 Mountains. 24 hours.


It may sound like an action movie, but it’s really our latest bid to support a great cause.



We’ve been searching high and low for our next big charity event. On Saturday 4th June, five members of the Trade Direct Insurance team (as part of Kelliher Insurance Group) will tackle the elements and the incline of the notorious 3 peaks challenge.

About the 3 peaks challenge from the guys


Steve Cox, Rob Rees, Andy Marlow, Andy Cooles and Ed Longley have challenged themselves to tackle the 3 peaks. If you’re not familiar with the 3 peaks, the team have to climb the highest peaks in each of Scotland, England and Wales. Best of all, they’ll have to do it in under 24 hours! The team will start with Ben Nevis at breakfast time, followed by Scaffell Pike, before finishing on Snowdon. It’s a huge undertaking and the team are busy preparing themselves and training for the big day.


“We’ve all done half marathons, 10K’s and triathlons, and we love doing it” says team member Steve Cox. “The 3 Peaks challenge is a unique one-off, so it’s a great opportunity to raise money for a charity that isn’t well known and does great work on next to nothing.”


SignPosts StartOver is a charity that provides temporary accommodation and support services to homeless men and women from all walks of life, helping them find their feet before moving into permanent accommodation. For over 25 years, Signposts has been working in Luton and Dunstable helping countless homeless people get back on track and start over. It does amazing work, and means a great deal to the team taking part.


The team are funding their 3 peaks challenge themselves, so every penny of the money raised will go help Signposts continue their vital work.
