The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge. We did it!

To raise money for Bluebell Wood who provide care, respite & support to poorly children & their family and as a fun but challenging way for P&W staff and family to work as a team outside of our daily work lives. A total of 17 victims completed the challenge including a site engineer, accounts manager, project surveyors, labourer, chairman, cleaner, directors & site managers along with their family. The 25 mile walk comprised of the ascent and descent of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks from Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and last but certainly not least Ingleborough. We left Doncaster in a bus provided by P&W at 4am to arrive and start the walk at 7am. After a break for lunch we then tackled the last peak. P&W provided accommodation, food & drinks for all our fund raising. In return our team have so far raised over £5000 for Bluebell Wood with the total still rising.

Well done all the Pacy & Wheatley team for taking part, and succeeding in the Yorkshire peaks challenge Saturday. Great day spent with great people, with some great memories. Helping those less fortunate than ourselves through our support of the Bluebell wood children's hospice. The exact total raise is still to confirm, with sponsorship still coming in, but we will have raised over £2500.00, fantastic. Just needs some new legs now!!!!!!!
