Martin House Children’s Hospice near Wetherby is benefitting from the efforts of four Yorkshire firms whose staff completed the gruelling 24.5 mile Three Peaks challenge in just 10 hours and succeeded in raising £1,102 for the charity.
A team of over 20 people comprising staff from wealth management and insurance group Lawrence Scoffield, Leeds law firm Clarion, chartered accountants and business advisers Sagars and Bradford accountancy firm Naylor Wintersgill undertook the walk which included a 1,600m climb on 19 May in support of Martin House Hospice.
Located in a purpose-built hospice in Boston Spa, Martin House Hospice cares for children and young people from throughout the Yorkshire region who have progressive life limiting illnesses and provides support to their families.
“Martin House Hospice is truly inspiring - over the last 25 years, it has helped thousands of young people and their families in the region,” explains Neil Moles, director of Lawrence Scoffield. “We undertook the Three Peaks Walk in difficult conditions, but I’m sure the rest of the team will agree that it was worth every step to know we were supporting such a fantastic local cause.”
