Colin Blears embarks on triple Quest for charity
Colin Blears, product development manager at Quest, a leading provider of survey, mortgage valuation and Home Report software solutions, is embarking on three personal challenges during 2012 in a bid to raise funds for the charity, Help For Heroes. This includes a trek up Ben Nevis on 4 June 2012 to light a beacon at the summit of Britain's highest peak as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
With both his sister and brother-in-law currently on tour in Afghanistan since March this year, Colin decided to take on some personal challenges in a bid to support the British troops and its related charity, as Colin explains:
"I decided that 2012 was my time to get out of the office and take on some challenges to support the men and women of the Armed Forces who protect and serve us without a second thought. The main event is a trek up to the summit of Ben Nevis, which is significantly different from my daily routine as it typically includes trips to Starbucks and sitting in front of a computer delivering innovative solutions for our customers! I'm undertaking the challenge alongside my mother and Falklands war-veteran father, who I nominated to join me, and we are all looking forward to reaching the summit come 4th June. When taking on any challenge, either work or personal, I believe that the difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination along with support from a good team."
Colin has also signed-up to do a Skydive on 30th May, and is registered to do his first bungee jump in 13th October at Chepstow Quarry, which will see challengers take an amazing 400ft leap of faith.
