According to Wisbech Standard, four accountants climbed 3,600 feet, waded through ice-cold streams and
tackled craggy lava fields and snow covered volcanoes during a gruelling three-day charity trek through Iceland.

One of those accountants was former Boston Grammar School student, Mark Hildred, managing partner of Moore Thompson, which has an office in Wisbech. The money raised will be split equally between the four partners’ chosen charities.

Mark’s father Albert died from Parkinson’s last June having fought the disease for 23 years. He said: “It was a tough three days trekking and camping in wind, rain, sleet and snow, but it was worth it for the amazing amount that has been donated. We would like to thank everyone for helping us to smash our fundraising target of £10,000. We know that this money is going to four fantastic charities who all do fantastic work in their fields. It was certainly a great way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary.”
