Square Mile Investment Consulting and Research will take on the Three Peaks Challenge to support CASCAID in a bid to raise over £1m for Cancer Research UK, as part of a new industry-wide charity initiative.

The Square Mile team will climb three mountains in three countries: Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales. To be successful, they must complete the challenge within 24 hours on the 8th and 9th June 2017.

Richard Romer-Lee, Square Mile's Managing Director, said: "Square Mile is fully supportive of the work that Cancer Research UK does and I am proud to be one of the ambassadors for the CASCAID charity this year."

"This is going to be a great event, bringing the asset management community together and it is truly inspiring to know that everyone takes part for the same reason - there's no better way to support one of the leading charities in the country in helping them to continue their vital work."

"With your help we would like to raise as much as possible for this amazing cause. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities."
