Hays staff raise money for charity

A team of employees from recruitment firm Hays took part in a physical challenge to raise money for charity Action for Children.

The ‘Beat the Moon’ challenge in the Lake District involved cycling nine miles, followed by a nine mile trek to the summit of Scafell Pike, then a canoeing stint on Wast Water, ending with a one mile run.

The entire challenge had to be completed before the moon rose.

The challenge, which took place at the beginning of May, has so far raised £50,000 for Action for Children, one of the UK’s largest children’s charities.

Tim Cook, managing director of Hays, said: “We are particularly pleased so many of our consultants and clients wanted to get involved in such a tough event which was both mentally and physically demanding.”
