Keen to help a local charity, as well as running his successful Auditel franchise, Simon Eggleton took part in the Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge.

As Chairman of Chiltern Business Connections, which sponsored the event, Eggleton has played an active role in organising the charity hike.

Participants were able to take part on a five, nine, or 18-mile route along the Chilterns Ridgeway, while at the same time raising funds for Iain Rennie Grove House, a charity that supports local families affected by life-limiting illnesses.

Eggleton, who was joined on the hike by his family, said: “We have been supporting Iain Rennie Grove House through our networking group for some time. It was a great opportunity to continue that encouragement. The whole event was an enjoyable family occasion – if a little extreme way to wear out the kids and dog!

“We raised a goodly amount – in excess of £1,000. Overall, the charity raised in the region of £65,000 – enough to provide nursing care to cancer patients for over 500 days.”
