A huge thank you to St Luke’s Hospice for visiting at our Sheffield office so we could hand over our fundraising cheque following the teams recent Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge!
The team completed the trek in an impressive 10 and a half hours, and raised a fantastic £1,738 for the charity.
Adam Machan, Luke Mitchell, Craig Harrison, Stephen Rowe, George Naylor, James Baillie, Angus Knowlson, Robert Lancaster and Ian Taylor from our Sheffield Mechanical & Electrical Building Services Design team used their ‘charity leave day’, which all staff are given by the company each year, to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
The 26-mile Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge saw the group hiking, walking and climbing through the stunning Yorkshire scenery of the Dales National Park, starting with smallest of the peak, Pen-y-ghent, before going tackling the peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside, climbing a final total of 1585 metres.
Waldeck Director, Adam Machan, shared:
“We walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks in July in memory of our friend and former Director, Ged Smith. I’d like to thank all those who donated and took part in the event which surpassed our £1000 target raised on behalf of St Luke’s considerably, with a final total of £1,738 – and counting!”
St Luke’s Hospice Fundraising Account Manager, Matthew Sheridan, added:
“This was a fantastic effort by the Waldeck team and one that really will make an enormous difference to the lives of all St Luke’s patients and their families.”
