Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

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.
