Team members Nicola, Leah, Kate, Laura and Sue from the Cockerton branch decided to use their Sunday rest day to challenge themselves all for a good cause.
In order to raise money for the Cancer Centre based at Northallerton Friarage Hospital they decided to conquer three of the Yorkshire Peaks. The day itself was a test of their physical and mental fortitude however the experience was very rewarding and as a result the branch has managed to raise £1,900.
Nicola, the branch manager had this to say: “25 miles, 3 peaks, 14 hours of walking, 50,000 steps and 5,000 calories burnt. It was fantastic teamwork and we have received an incredible amount of support from the people of Northallerton. However, it was the hardest thing we have ever done and was both physically and mentally challenging”
We also got involved in Northallerton Carnival where we raised an extra £350 for the same cause! This was from our home-made cake stall and tombola, which people generously bought tickets for.
We would like to thank everyone for their kind donations and continued support!
