Graham Elrick, Senior Supervisor, Montrose Riser and Storage Facility in the U.K., organized a group of men, called “Transocean Montrose,” to climb the Ben Nevis Mountain located near Fort William in Scotland for charity. At 4,370 feet, Benn Nevis is the highest mountain in Great Britain. To get others involved to financially support their hike, Graham set up an online fundraising account, which sent all donations to the Cancer Research UK foundation. Graham and his team: Sam Elrick, Riser Technician; Andrew Hall, Roustabout; John Mullen, Inventory Co-coordinator; and Gavin McIntosh, Riser Administrator, raised £2,157, more than USD $3,300.
The team climbed the mountain in three hours and 15 minutes and took this photo as soon as they reached the top. (From left) Graham, Sam, Andrew and John. Not pictured is Gavin, who is taking the picture.
