Novus raises Â£1,000 in Three Peaks Challenge /
Back to news
A group of our employees have taken part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, raising £1,000 for charity Caudwell Children.
The eight walkers took on their 25-mile challenge over the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, which form part of the Pennine range in the Yorkshire Dales, on June 29 in support of the Stoke-on-Trent-based charity.
Those who took part in the trek were led by company director Chris Walford. Joining Chris in the challenge was corporate social responsibility manager Kevin Rhone, along with fellow Stoke-based employees Andy Ford and Jess Adams.
Taking part from our Wrexham office were Jeremy Anderson, Michelle Nolan, Ffion Smith and Mathew Lawrence. The group had taken part in training sessions, including completing a practice walk in Derbyshire.
Chris Walford said: “It is our employees that make Novus the successful business we are and team charity challenges like the Yorkshire Three Peaks highlight just what a great team spirit we have. The whole team pulled together to get through the 25 miles in 10 hours, beating our target of 12 hours.
“Not only was this a great team challenge but we also raised £1,000 for the children’s charity Caudwell Children. Caudwell Children provide family support services, equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children and their families across the UK. This was our first charity challenge as Novus Property Solutions and we are already underway with planning our next employee challenge!"
