Dozens of UK office products industry personnel gathered in the UK’s mountainous Lake District for the 29th annual Climb of Life (COL) event last Friday, raising a record sum for the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).

The group tackled ten of England’s most challenging peaks amidst some pretty atrocious conditions and in the process raised a record £102,000 ($128,000) in sponsorship to help fund the fight against cancer.

"Congratulations to everyone who took part in this year’s COL," said OPI CEO Steve Hilleard who participated in the event once again. "Raising a record sum for the ICR made battling the rain, wind, hail and snow that bit more bearable."

Hilleard added: "And well done to Team OPI for again being the top corporate fundraiser [£26,242] and a huge thank you to everyone who supported us and all the other hardy participants."
