Staff and friends raise over £300 completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Yorkshire Peaks

Members of the Sport & Physical Activity team have, along with some friends scaled the Yorkshire 3 peaks in aid of charity. Organised by Caroline Race and Tom Exeter, the group completed the gruelling 24 mile walk up Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside in just 10 hours while fighting gale force winds throughout the day!

The group completed the challenge to raise money for the Facilities Directorate nominated charities; Martin House Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support. They have done a fantastic job and raised over £300!

After finishing the walk Caroline said

“The wind added to the challenge- particularly on the 2nd hill- Whernside- your feet kept getting blown away from under you each time you took a step! I think those of the group who had not done it before did especially well to get round. All in all a time of 10 hours was pretty good considering the circumstances!”

 

Well done to everyone that took part!
