Congratulations to the team of Hobson & Porter staff who completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in under 12-hours.
The intrepid team climbed Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough all to raise vital funds for life-changing equipment for Maddison.
The daughter of colleague Amie Cundill suffers from Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and Severe Refractory Epilepsy. This means she cannot walk, sit unaided or support her own weight and movements and struggles with learning difficulties.
Staff members completed the 24.5 miles walk, which involved 1,700 metres of elevation, and contributed funds to the £2,714 raised for specialist therapy and equipment.
Dan Lamplough is our preconstruction manager and took part in the challenge. He said: “We are incredibly proud of the money we have raised for Maddison and the difference it will make, enabling the family to afford the treatment and equipment she needs.
“The challenge was by no means easy, but it was for a very worthy cause that is close to our hearts. We wanted to do something to support Maddison and ease the pressure on the family.
“Here at Hobson & Porter, we want to support our staff as much as possible, and their families are a part of our family. We have been eager to help Amie, Matt and Maddison, and overwhelmed by the support we have had by those donating.”
