On Saturday 19th August thirteen members of the Whiting team embarked on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for Parkinson’s UK.
Their aim was to collect £5,000 for the charity, in support of a much loved colleague who was recently diagnosed with this debilitating disease.
The tough challenge involved walking 26 miles over the Yorkshire Dales’ highest points – a combined climb of 6,735 ft – but despite inclement weather the team all managed to achieve this within the targeted 12 hours.
One of the organisers Matt Murphy said: “This was a fantastic challenge and, as a team, we are immensely proud that all 13 members finished within twelve hours. The support has been truly overwhelming and we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, sub contractors, suppliers, friends and family for their generous donations. On to next year!”
A fabulous final total of £5,977 was raised.
