We have returned in one piece after an epic journey. It was both brutal and beautiful, completing the challenge in 7 days.
The matterhorn lived up to it’s iconic status. It literally beats you up but the exposure and views made it worth it, both teams summiting around 10am onto a windy summit but blue skies.
The Haute route also lived up to it’s namesake ‘High Route’. We went from pass to pass, col to col, lake to lake, some days covering 50km and 6 cols. In 38 (combined) hours we covered 116 miles, climbing 10,698m. The legs were tired. The finale was as expected, a long trudge. A near miss with a rather large rock kept us alert and we had perfect summit conditions allowing us to see the matterhorn from the top.
All in all, a journey we will never forget that pushed us pretty hard. The flag sponsorship set us on our way and we have raised over £6k to date.
Thank you. All funds have gone directly to helping children in conflict.
Providing quality services and products
The initial business, Gamber Growers was established in the late 1970s as a co-operative named after the Gamber Brook which flows through members farms and was set up to market locally produced potatoes. Patrick Lewis joined the business in 1988 as manager and in 1993 the co operative developed into a partnership between Patrick and Frank Green and relocated to Little Pengethly Farm in 1996.
The partnership was dissolved in 2016 and Patrick then created Gamber Logistics Ltd continuing with Cleaning, Litter Trading, Potato Supply Management and Trading and Road Haulage. Three key managers were appointed as Directors, Adrian Griffiths – Cleaning and Haulage; Mark Godsall – Litter Trading and Rob Evans – Potato Supply management and trading.
The company moved to their new site at New House Farm Barn in 2018 providing upto date office facilities, workshop and equipment storage. Margaret Lerego manages the office and is the longest serving employee completing 28 years. Cartridge and Clay target sales and laser clay shooting included in the purchase of the site complete the Gamber portfolio of enterprises. The company currently employs 32 full time and two part time employees.
