We are proud to have a workforce that believes in giving to the community and supporting causes that can make a positive change in the lives of others.
We are pleased to share that on the 5th May five of our staff members (Karen Melling, Izabela Mayman, Paul Walker, Andrew Mayman and Natasha Thorpe) took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for the Freeman Heart & Lung Transplant Association.
The challenge took on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. This route ran for 24 miles and included an ascent of 5,200ft.
Our staff members finished the challenge in just under twelve hours and were able to raise a total of £840 for the cause. On speaking to them about their trek up the three peaks they said :
“It was a great achievement, I feel really good about doing it and we have raised a lot of money. Also really pleased with everyone who took part” (Karen Melling, Documentation Controller )
“We have raised money for a great cause and the support we have got from staff, friends and relatives is amazing.” (Andrew Mayman, Design Supervisor/Sub-Tek Lead Engineer)
“Very glad that I joined the others in the challenge. It was a good day out and we are looking forward to any other challenges or causes we can raise money for” (Paul Walker, Shipping Assistant)
We would like to congratulate all of them on completing the challenge and raising money for the Freeman Heart & Lung Transplant Association. Just like our staff, if you would like to support this great cause, all you need to do is follow the link to Karen’s fundraising web page:
