Three Peaks Challenge – 2023

Our intrepid explorers take on the Three Peaks Challenge! September 2023 The toughest of the TSL team took on the Three Peaks Challenge to fundraise for our two charity partners: Nerve Tumours UK and Abby’s Heroes. The team started in Scotland, taking on all 1,345m of Ben Nevis at 5am before heading to hike 978m of Scafell Pike and then 1085m of Snowdon. It was a total of 23 miles to hike, and the challenge was to complete all three mountains plus the travelling within 24 hours.

TSL Visits Goodwood – 2023 Team Day

We gathered our wonderful team together for a day out at the beautiful Goodwood Estate in Chichester. Our team has grown considerably over the past year, and we’ve been lucky enough to gain new faces in our office team and at most of our major project sites, so it was a great opportunity to get everyone together for a day of fun. A team of golfers spent the day tackling 18 holes, while the non-golfers turned their hands to clay pigeon shooting. It wouldn’t be a TSL Team Day without a few awards, so Managing Director Dexter Copeland had the pleasure of announcing the winners before dinner. Congratulations to: Contract Manager Chris Armstong – Nearest to the Pin Commercial Manager Ross Johnson – Longest Drive Head of Major Projects Shaun Richards – Individual Stableford Winner Small Works Operative Dan Grainger … Continue reading

Meet Our 2023 Charity Partners

This year the TSL team are fundraising for two charities very close to our hearts: Nerve Tumours UK and Abby’s Heroes. In 2022, our Technical Director Dan Jarnak and his family were introduced to the charities after his 2-year-old daughter, Evie, was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis. The condition, known as NF1, is a genetic condition that causes tumours to grow anywhere around the body. Evie has tumours on her optic nerves which are affecting her eyesight. She is severely visually impaired as a result, and here’s where the two charities have been supporting Evie, Dan and his wife, Rachel. Evie’s NF1 Journey Dan said: “Evie’s journey began when the birthmarks we thought she had been confirmed as café au lait spots, which are a common first symptom on Neurofibromatosis type 1, or NF1 as it’s often known. Her diagnosis of NF1 … Continue reading
