Computer Weekly team climbs the Alps

A group of intrepid industry IT representatives braved glaciers, high altitude and steep terrain to scale the 3,542m Aiguille du Tour in the French Alps last week, writes Nathalie Towner.

A Computer Weekly team consisting of senior reporter Antony Adshead and key accounts manager Adrian Goldfinch raised more than £3,000 by taking the Atsco Alpine Challenge in support of the NSPCC's Full Stop campaign against child abuse.

Together with Sam Blake and Dan King of IT recruitment company DPConnect and David Jenkins of Reed Technology, the group climbed the peak on the French-Swiss border and expect to raise a total of nearly £6,000 for the children's charity.

The Atsco Alpine Challenge has raised more than £22,000 for the NSPCC's Full Stop campaign over the past 18 months.

Many thanks go to the Computer Weekly team's sponsors:, Fuse PR, IMS, Anite, Amcat, Trend Micro, Sterling Commerce, Tarantella, Arinso and Rivercalm.
