Underwriting director raises money for charity

Gaynor Waterman, underwriting director, at Partnership Assurance, has helped raise 109,000 for the British Heart Foundation after completing a four-day trek through the Andes, in Peru to reach the lost city of the Incas Machu Picchu.

The trek, which required climbing to a dizzying height of 4,200m above sea level, where altitude reduces oxygen levels by almost a third, was a challenge for the 39 that took part.

All entrants successfully completed the trek which involved climbing up to Dead Womens Pass the highest point of the infamous Inca Trail.

Waterman says: It certainly wasnt an easy task, but it was all worth it when we reached our destination.

“I am absolutely delighted with the amount of money raised for such a worthwhile charity.
