Three peaks fundraising for The Children’s Hospital – 23/10/12

3-peaks-1

3-peaks-2

A six-man team from Henry Boot Construction has conquered the three highest peaks in Britain in a bid to raise thousands of pounds for The Children’s Hospital, Sheffield.

Tony Shaw, Richard Grafton, Dean Cowling, Steve Lane, Rob Cundill and Darryl Culmer started their challenge on 11thOctober with an ascent, in the snow, of Ben Nevis in Scotland.

They managed not to get lost in the snow and carried on their challenge at Scafell Pike in the Lake District, where Powerade and Mars Bars kept them going.

The final peak to be conquered was Snowdon in North Wales, after which the team had a well deserved rest before their return to work.

The team has raised over £1500 so far on their Just Giving page where donations are still being accepted  - http://www.justgiving.com/henryboot-threepeaks.

The Children’s Hospital Charity funds new projects that transform the hospital experience for visitors and patients, as well as funding vital research into childhood illnesses.

Donations from our supply chain partners include: Linden Signs, JP Glasby Ltd, Green Piling, Hillside Contracts, YORbuild, YORcivil & Efficiency North, Michael Dyson, Little Spark, MCP Environmental, Drainage 2000 Ltd and Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, as well as HBC staff and family members.

“It was a fantastic experience, for a worthy cause.  It was a great feeling of personal and team achievement arriving back at the car park on Snowdon having completed all three. Thank goodness for Mars bars and Powerade!”
