News Release: Mountaineering Challenge Kicks Off Arrow Global Engage Programme

Arrow Global has kick started its official volunteer and community programme - Arrow Global Engage - by raising over £4000 for two Manchester-based charities in a series of gruelling physical challenges.

23 Arrow Global employees scaled Ben Nevis and Snowdon over a 23 hour period, facing blizzard conditions and injuries in their quest to reach the summits of both mountains in aid of charity.

Youth charity ReachOut! and local hospice Francis House will benefit from the sponsorship funds raised by staff, supporters, and a significant contribution from the company.

Event organiser and Arrow Global's Senior HR Manager, Paul Longfield, said, "This has been a fantastic way to officially launch the Arrow Global Engage programme.  These charities invest so much in the local community with many people benefiting positively from the support that they provide."

Arrow Global is grateful to everyone who generously supported the team's efforts and, in so doing, helped to launch Arrow Global Engage.
