Team members set to complete Yorkshire Three Peaks for charity
11 brave team members are set climb the three highest peaks in Yorkshire to raise money for The Care Workers Charity.
Sara Gallagher, Mark McDonald, Daniel Rowark, Laura Russell, Andrina Andrews and Lee Underwood, will attempt to climb Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
Five team members from Kew House Care Home will also be joining them on their tough journey. Georgina Miller, Melita Carter, Tessa Homewood, Silvania Kirchner and Elaine Tilbury will also be attempting the gruelling route, which totals almost 40km walking distance and takes on average 10-12 hours to complete, with heights reaching up to 2,415ft.
They are tackling the momentous challenge to help ensure that no care worker ever faces financial hardship alone. Both teams have already exceeded their target, raising over £1800 between them.
Regional Manager at Hallmark Care Homes, Sara Gallagher said: “The team that will taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge have chosen to raise money for the Care Workers Charity because it is an extremely worthy cause. It supports carers who look after some of the most vulnerable people in our society when they are in need.”
“The Yorkshire Three Peaks will be an enormous challenge for all of us.”
CEO of The Care Workers Charity, Alex Ramamurthy said: “We’ve got a real diverse group taking on this challenge with us and it’s great to see Hallmark Care Homes represented. Hallmark are one of our more committed supporters, and have been for several years. The Challenge will allow us to raise awareness of our cause and the necessary funds so we can continue our work and develop further services for our nation’s 1.5 million care workers.
