Recapping OSL Group’s Master Cutler Challenge

This year, OSL Group are proud to support Cavendish Cancer Care, a charity dedicated to supporting individuals and families impacted by cancer. Their work helps thousands of people each year navigate the incredibly difficult effects of a cancer diagnosis, helping access support, counselling and other resources.

To assist their efforts, we took part in the Master Cutler Challenge, a fundraising initiative which takes place from March to September, during which teams complete various events to raise money for the charity.

Julie Finchett, HR and People Manager at OSL Group, played a key part in the organisation of the Challenge, adding the following:

“Taking part in the Master Cutler challenge really brought the group together as a team. We were absolutely over the moon to win the teamwork award. We also had lots of fun in the process and raised a fantastic amount of money for Cavendish Cancer Care.”

Teams from different businesses within the Group took part in a variety of different challenges, here’s a recap of their efforts;


Climbed 3560ft up Mount Snowdon in Wales.

The 10-person team from Securefast climbed the tallest mountain in Wales on the 18th of June, 2022, marking their second time conquering Mount Snowdon.

With ages ranging from 28-70, the team demonstrated admirable resilience in their ascent of the peak, representing the same collaborative effort and support that the organisation puts into their workplace. With good weather and high spirits, the team were even lucky enough to get a clear view at the top of the mountain.

Congratulations to the Securefast team for their achievement and continued charity efforts.
