Colleagues at The Wigley Group are taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre in Coventry.
Health and Safety manager Claire Lynch, Estates Manager Louis Smith, Facilities Co-ordinator Pete Burnell, Head of Asset Management James Ellerington, Accounts Apprentice Alexis Considine, Facilities Manager Alan Greenway and Director James Davies are in training to complete the 24 miles, which includes 5,200 ft of ascent, in under 12 hours.
Staff at the commercial property company based at Middlemarch Business Park in Coventry raise funds and promote awareness for a local charity every year and have chosen to support Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre in 2017.
The charity provides free complementary treatment to children and young people with disabilities, health problems and special needs.
Claire, who is co-ordinating the challenge, said: “We recently visited Tiny Tim’s Children’s Centre to see the incredible work it does in offering treatment to families who might otherwise not be able to access it.
“We all found it an inspirational visit and want to raise as much money as we can to support the charity’s work.
“We have set up an online fundraising page and hope that colleagues and associates, family and friends will get behind us. Training is going well and we have all vowed to complete the challenge no matter what.”
The group will be taking on Yorkshire’s highest peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough on Wednesday, July 12.
