While most of us were enjoying our Bank Holiday weekend by relaxing in the sun with the family and possibly having a barbecue or two, a team of 21 Callcredit staff and clients were taking on the mighty Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge.
This is the third year running that the Callcredit team has taken on this tough challenge which involves 24 miles and 3,000 feet of climbing. It’s certainly no stroll through the park.
With any kind of challenge like this there were bumps and bruises, scrapes and creaky knees, but it was all for charity so the team kept on going until they found the finish line, all the while cheered on by friends and family.
The Callcredit team were raising money for the Candlelighters, a Yorkshire-based charity that helps children and families who are touched by cancer. Callcredit and Noddle are proud to support the Candlelighters as they provide practical, financial and emotional support to those who need it and are the pre-eminent children’s cancer charity in Yorkshire.
The Callcredit team were aiming to raise £2,500 and despite donations still rolling in, they’ve already smashed their target! What’s more, Callcredit have pledged to double whatever is eventually raised which means the team’s already raised more than £5,000. That’s more than enough to kit out an entire therapy room in a new Support Centre for families facing cancer.
