Wave Search 3 Peaks Challenge

On Friday 28th June 2019, our 5 man team completed the National 3 Peaks Challenge. We reached the summits of the three highest peaks of Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) in just 22hrs 30mins! Myself (Gaz Jones), Mat Gladdish, Stuart Lindars, Aaron Mitford and Leon Everitt will be started at Ben Nevis at 12pm on the Friday and finished in Snowdon after a gruelling 462 miles of road, 23 miles of mountain terrain with a total ascent of 10,052ft! We raised over £5,000 for two extremely special causes... Simpal & Frankie Box. Have a look here for donations and information on the charity etc.

2019 Charity Partnership with simPal

We are proud to announce that our 2019 charity partner is simPal who are the only charity in the UK offering free pre-paid sim cards for people living with cancer.


Chris Lewis (Co-Founder), Blair Papworth (Co-Founder) and Steven Evans (Head of Services) are wonderful people doing some truly amazing work by providing people with cancer the opportunity to stay connected... something which we all take for granted. The help and support they gave my sister Hannah as she went through her own personal Breast Cancer battle was unbelievable. Our team at Wave Search are looking forward to partnering with simPal in 2019 to help raise awareness and money for this fantastic charity!
