Our Chief Executive Gurpreet completed the Yorkshire 3 peaks raising vital funds for St Cuthberts Hospice.

The Yorkshire 3 peaks involves climbing the 3 peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent with an assent of over 5,000 sq feet and a total distance of 38.5km. Gurpreet, alongside his wife completed the challenge in a very respectable time of just over 11 hours.  With Durham Group matching donations made, Gurpreet was able to raise enough funds to cover the costs of the St Cuthberts Hospice operation for the day.

Commenting on the challenge Gurpreet said “I chose to do the challenge in May thinking that the weather would be kind to us.  I was wrong, it was a very wet and windy day which made the conditions even more challenging. Whilst very difficult, doing the challenge was a fantastic experience and as much of a metal challenge as a physical one.  Having been so well supported by friends and colleagues and knowing I was raising vital funds for St Cuthberts Hospice really helped provide the extra motivation very much needed on the day”.

We look forward to seeing what challenge Gurpreet takes on next!
