The team embarked on an 18-mile journey, ascending over 1,000 meters across the Keswick Three Peaks. The challenging trek was undertaken in memory of Giacom’s coworkers, raising an impressive £17,000 for the Make a Wish Foundation and The British Red Cross. These funds will significantly impact the lives of those in need, continuing the legacy of the team’s colleagues.

Terry O’Brien, CEO of Giacom, expressed his pride in the team’s achievement, stating, “Congratulations to everyone who participated in this year’s Keswick Three Peaks challenge. Your dedication and effort are truly inspiring. A special thank you to CityFibre for their continued sponsorship and support. We couldn’t have asked for better partners.”
