The 30 earned their places as part of a service excellence reward programme. Employees were nominated for providing excellent service and the winners were drawn in a lottery.

All money raised will go to SOS Children’s Villages, which is the world’s biggest charity for orphans and abandoned children.

The expedition team is made up of staff from several Zurich locations, including the UK Isle of Man, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland and Hong Kong.
