Heather Templeton, finance director at luxury jeweller and diamond retailer Chisholm Hunter, alongside 15 other climbers, took on the Inca trials in the Andes Mountains which included a five-day climb.
Chisholm Hunter has supported SBH Scotland since inception with managing director Harry Brown “actively encouraging” his team to take time out to fundraise for the charity.
Harry Brown, managing director at Chisholm Hunter said: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Heather on her fantastic Machu Picchu trek, she certainly put herself outside her comfort zone. She has seen some incredible sights and raised critical funds for a charity that is very important to us here at Chisholm Hunter.”
Deborah Roe, fundraising director at SBH Scotland said: “To trek through the Andes and reach the top of Machu Picchu is no easy feat. This is an incredible achievement by Heather, and we are grateful for the time and effort she dedicated to this challenge.
“Each year, SBH Scotland needs to raise £1m to continue providing vital services across Scotland. Without the support of individual fundraisers and corporate partners such as Chisholm Hunter, this would not be possible.”
