Employees taking on Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in support of The Trussell Trust
On Saturday 30th September, a number of our employees will be embarking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money in support of the Long Eaton and Sawley branch of The Trussell Trust, and we need your support.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge gives participants the opportunity to take on roughly 25 miles of hill walking including conquering the three highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park – Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres).
Thousands of groups from across the country get together every year to take on the challenge, creating a sense of community and togetherness while enjoying the beautiful views and benefitting from the intense physical exercise.
Ben Feltham, our Head of Compliance, is a seasoned hiker and has planned a number of 12 – 18 mile walks since March this year – including leading groups up Kinder Scout in the Peak District. Every walk organised by Ben is open to McCann employees and aims to promote physical fitness and mental well-being through spending time together in the great outdoors.
This month, Ben is taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge alongside Carl Lancaster, our Operations Director, as well as a number of site managers, supervisors, office staff and operatives with the aim of raising £3000 for The Trussell Trust’s Long Eaton and Sawley branch.
Speaking ahead of the walk and what it means to be taking part, Ben said, “I’m really looking forward to the exciting challenge ahead of us,”
“The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is an incredible route to follow and, as someone who regularly takes part in hikes and hill climbs, I know that you never tire of the breathtaking views,”
“It’s great to be able to get out in the fresh air with colleagues and enjoy a day that challenges us both physically and mentally. More importantly, we’re taking part in the challenge to raise money for a charity very close to our hearts; The Trussell Trust,”
“The Trust works tirelessly across the country to support food banks and be there for people facing hardship. It makes me immensely proud that as a team we’re coming together to raise money for such an important cause. All monetary donations made in support of the challenge will go directly to the Trust and help those most in need.”
