Climbing the extra mile for WDP
Staff at a property services company have walked 24 miles and climbed more than 5,000ft in order to raise thousands of pounds for a disability charity.
A team of staff at Norcott Brook-based Pennington Choices tackled the three peaks of Yorkshire in order to raise £4,336 for Warrington Disability Partnership.
Employees climbed Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in just over 12 hours in aid of the Sankey Bridges-based charity.
Mark Seaborn, managing director at Pennington Choices, said: Im very proud of our teams dedication and achievements. Warrington Disability Partnership is a fantastic charity which we have continued to support over the years". Our fundraising reached over £2,000, so we decided to match this and bring our total raised to £4,336.
WDP chief executive Dave Thompson MBE DL expressed his thanks to team Pennington, on meeting the team it was clear that the challenge took great physical and mental effort. The money raised will go to our Legacy Appeal which supports jobs for young disabled people.
