2019

With the success of 2018’s Yorkshire Three Peaks, we wanted to ramp up our philanthropy in by setting up a committee whose responsibility is to organise more fundraising and make sure the other employees’ voices are heard within the committee. The main goal of the committee is to raise more money in 2019 than in 2018.

At the start of the year, our employees voted “Make a Wish UK,” to be our chosen charity for any fundraising done in 2019. We have been doing various things at all our offices across the UK including “Casual-Fridays.” As well as other events in order to raise some funds for Make a Wish,  As well as hosting other events such as bake sales.

2018

The Yorkshire Three Peaks is described as a gruelling 24-mile walk including climbs of 1585 meters and on average the walk takes between 10 -12 hours to complete. The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km) and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. 

The climb raised over £1,500, exceeding the £1000 that we had hoped to raise. The money is going to 3 separate charities the Marie Curie Foundation, Ollerton Memory Café & Mayflower Sanctuary in Bawtry.

We are excited to share the funds between the charities and find out about what our contributions will allow the charities to do. So, we travelled up to Bawtry to visit the Sanctuary, upon arriving we discovered that the sanctuary is set on an idyllic/rural hill.
