Travis Perkins staff trek across the Yorkshire Dales

A team of 49 Staff members from branches across the Midlands trekked across the three peaks of the Dales – Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent, with teams finishing five to 12 hours after the start. The group was joined by customers and suppliers to climb to heights of 2415 feet.

The money raised will be donated to Cancer Research UK and children’s hospice charity Together for Short Lives.

Ian Ellis, business development manager at Travis Perkins, said: “Taking on the three peaks was a tough trial for all involved. The length of the walk and the steepness of the track tested everyone’s fitness, but we pulled together and crossed the finish line.

“Many thanks to everyone who donated and supported us, we exceeded our target by around £3,000 and raised a large sum of money that is being put towards two great causes.”
