Back in September, 16 staff members from HB&O travelled up north to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks as a charity challenge, raising money for The Myton Hospices.

The team had an aim to raise £2000 but after extremely generous support from friends, colleagues and clients, the grand total amounted to £6035.

The challenge was to take on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, covering a total of just over 25 miles and 1585m of ascent, in under 12 hours.

Alex Clarke, Jatinder Hayer and Fred Gorvin were the quickest team members, completing the challenge in nine hours and twenty minutes, and all 16 members of the team crossed the finish line.

Mark Ashfield, Managing Director at HB&O, who also completed the challenge, commented “I am so proud of the grit and determination of each and every team member. They pulled together to support each other when times were hard to complete this tough challenge, with the aim of raising money to support a great local cause”.
