Teams Rise to the 3 Peaks Challenge!
In early June Lex Dibb, Supply Chain Liaison and Paul Harrop, Unit 1 at AC UK and Ireland, set off with family and friends to tackle the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in aid of their Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
Becky Holland, Competence Coordinator, was on hand for the 3rd year running to drive the support vehicle. Battling torrential rain and summit winds of approximately 19 miles per hour, the group managed to complete 2 of the 3 peaks, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, but despite their best efforts it was decided it was unsafe to continue.
On the 1st of July a second group from our Birstall Warehouse took on the challenge, to raise even more funds for our charity partner: Kerry Garforth.
Gail Baraclough, Karolina Zielonka, Lewis Harvey, James Hilman, James McCann, Carl Lightfoot, Jonathan Leybourne and Michaela Lupa all agreed that:
On the same day Lex, Paul Brotherton and Ryan Galloway set off once again and completed the challenge after the washout of their first attempt, posting a very respectable time of under 9 hours.
Thank you to all the walkers for their efforts and for fundraising!
