On Saturday 22nd June 2013 a group of 18 staff members from both TF Solutions and Lawton Tubes completed the Three Peaks of Yorkshire challenge on behalf of The Donna Louise Trust.
The day started at 7 AM with everybody meeting at the Pen-Y-Ghent café to begin the 26 mile challenge across the Yorkshire Dales. All 18 team members battled hail, rain and strong winds throughout the day to tackle the hike conquering three peaks that combined are a 5,238 ft. climb and descent.
Members of Staff from both TF Solutions and Lawton Tubes completed the challenge in 9 hours and 20 mins shaving significant amounts of time off the 12 hour time limit and the initial target set at the start of the day.
Mike Sanderson, Managing Director at TF Solutions said of the event “I would like to congratulate all members of staff from TF Solutions and Lawton Tubes who participated in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, you are a credit to both companies, not only taking on the challenge but giving up a full weekend and raising money for such a worthy cause as the Donna Louise Trust and also a huge thank you goes to all of our sponsors, well done everyone!”
Over £3,500 has been raised from the event so far which is a fantastic achievement for everybody involved and all who donated.
The Donna Louise Trust is a fantastic children’s hospice based in Staffordshire and provides outstanding levels of treatment and support for Children battling terminal illness and their families. It is fair to say the cause was a more than worthy one and everybody at TF Solutions and Lawton Tubes would encourage everybody else to do whatever they see fit to support the charity.
