A COVENTRY property-management company is set to embark on a 24-mile challenge to raise funds for a local charity.
Colleagues at The Wigley Group are preparing to trek across the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge later this summer.
Participants are given a maximum of 12 hours to complete the challenge which will see them ascend over 5,000 ft.
Each year staff choose a local charity to raise funds and promote awareness for.
This year they have chosen to support Tiny Tim’s Children Centre – a charity which provides free treatments to children and young people with disabilities, health problems and special needs.
The team includes: Claire Lynch, Louis Smith, Pete Burnell, James Ellerington, Alexis Considine, Alan Greenway and James Davies.
Claire, who is co-ordinating the challenge, said: “We recently visited Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre to see the incredible work it does in offering treatment to families who might otherwise not be able to access it.
“We all found it an inspirational visit and want to raise as much money as we can to support the charity’s work.
“We have set up an online fundraising page and hope that colleagues and associates, family and friends will get behind us.
“Training is going well and we have all vowed to complete the challenge no matter what.”
The group will be taking on Yorkshire’s highest peaks on Wednesday, July 12.
