A team of 60 from The New Homes Group, is taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Funding Neuro.
Nine teams including housebuilder clients, Lloyds Banking Group, Barclays and Nationwide Building Society, take on the 24 mile route – including an ascent of 5,200 ft – across the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, in under 12 hours.
The team will raise awareness and as much money as possible for Funding Neuro, a charity that provides research and support to people with Brain Cancer, Parkinson’s and other neurological conditions.
The New Homes Group has supported Funding Neuro since 2014.
“The teams are looking forward to taking on this challenge and both training for the day itself and fundraising is well underway with dress down days, cakes sales, raffles and other activities taking place,” says Terry Higgins, Managing Director at The New Homes Group. “We aim to raise as much money as possible for this important charity – a charity partnership that is very valuable to us and one we’ve partnered with for a number of years – and we are proud of our colleagues taking part and wish them the best of luck on the day.”
Sharon Kane, CEO, Funding Neuro said, “The support from The New Homes Group, since 2014, has been invaluable to Funding Neuro.
It has enabled us to support Professor Steven Gill with his reversal of Parkinson’s Disease and increase life expectancy for children with the universally fatal brain tumour DIPG.”
