Unox launches Moving Mountains for Mental Health challenge
Unox UK has announced the launch of ‘Moving Mountains for Mental Health’ a challenge to carry a professional combi oven to the summit of Ben Nevis – the highest point in the UK.

As a long-term partner of The Burnt Chef Project, equipment manufacturer Unox has raised thousands for the industry-related cause. This new challenge will take their fundraising ‘to new heights’.  

Taking place over the last weekend in June (28-30th June 2024), a team from Unox UK, along with select partners, will be joined by a qualified mountain leader team to scale the 4,413ft mountain. The climb will be made significantly harder with the team carrying a Unox CHEFTOP-X – a 150kg professional oven – to the top of the mountain.

Aiming to raise £10,000 for The Burnt Chef Project, Unox is offering partners a chance to sponsor the challenge, while also asking for donations from customers, suppliers and stakeholders. Unox SpA, the parent company of Unox UK, has agreed to match donations pound for pound meaning everything raised by the UK team will be doubled.

Kris Hall, founder and chief executive of The Burnt Chef Project, said: “To have the ongoing support and commitment from a high-profile brand such as Unox is something we’re incredibly grateful for at The Burnt Chef Project.

“Moving Mountains is set to be a challenge of epic proportions. To take an oven that weighs in at more the 150kg to the top of the UK’s highest mountain is incredible and something that to my knowledge, has not been done before.

“With a fundraising target of £10,000, the support from Unox UK will go a long way to helping us support those experiencing mental health challenges, provide training to businesses and operators and reduce the stigma around mental health in the hospitality profession.”
