Colleagues from Anchor's Bradford offices and Townhead Court retirement property in Settle completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge last week - raising money for older people’s charities Age UK and Dementia UK.
The 17-strong group walked the 24-mile route in under 12 hours, which takes in the Yorkshire Dales summits of Pen-y-Ghent (691 metres above sea level), Whernside (728 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres).
Anchorcall’s Mark Campbell, who organised the event on Tuesday 24 April, said: “We decided to take up the three peaks challenge after looking into raising money for charity. Age UK and Dementia UK are both truly worthwhile causes which we deal with daily within Anchor.”
“Susan Kehoe from the Contracts Support team came along to support us on the day. She did a fantastic job of keeping us fed and watered and drove to the base of each peak to meet us and make sure we were all ok.”
“It was a fantastic thing to do - I really enjoyed it,” added Helen Bonner, Contracts Support Team Leader. “There were times when people had doubts, but we had fun and kept our spirits up.”
Carol Ward, who works in the Customer Centre, said: “The weather was perfect and the views were worth it. Who knows what our next challenge will be?”
The group has raised £1,393 for the older people's charities so far - well done guys!
