3M’s Personal Safety Team Climb for Cash
A team of 3Mers from the Personal Safety Division took on the BT Tower Climb in October to raise more than £1,750 for Action on Hearing Loss.
Led by marketing executive for Hearing Conservation, Rob Green, the 13-strong group scaled all 842 stairs of the mighty tower to raise funds to help the fight to reduce noise-induced hearing loss at home and in the workplace.
Said Rob: “It was a tough challenge. It was hot and claustrophobic as we scaled the engineering staircase at the core of the tower. There were no windows on the way up, making it difficult to judge our progress - so we just got stepping, each member of the team setting off a minute apart. Getting to the top was a relief and we were greeted with incredible views of London. Everyone climbed the full flight and put in a fantastic effort, with product specialist Mark Tyler completing it in just 6 minutes 48 seconds.”
The cash raised in sponsorship was matched with funding from the 3M Care&Share scheme to support 3M Personal Safety’s relationship with Action on Hearing Loss. Donations can still be made via the team’s Just Giving page.
3M Personal Safety Division and Action on Hearing Loss share a common goal, to reduce the number of noise induced hearing loss cases being diagnosed across the UK and Ireland.
