CH team walks Three Peaks for charity

A TEAM from an Ingleton Food Hall is donning their walking boots this month to raise money for the North West Air Ambulance.

Staff from Country Harvest will be taking part in the 23.5-mile Yorkshire Three Peaks’ challenge on August 21.

 

All money raised from the event will be donated to Country Harvest’s charity of the year, NWAA.

The team includes Cassie Harrison, who has previously completed the 42-mile Keswick to Barrow walk ; Food Hall manager Richard Simmonds; award winning butcher George Taylor, his mum Becky and fiancée Harriet; Gift Hall manager Rebecca Clark; shop worker Janet Faraday and marketing manager Sue Riley.

The team plans to walk from Horton in Ribblesdale via Whernside, Pen y ghent and Ingleborough in 12 hours and will be led by Adrian Leigh who volunteered to help guide them following an appeal on Facebook.

Country Harvest owner Mike Clark said: “It’s a tremendous effort by everyone concerned and I would have loved to have joined them but someone has to work in the shop that day! We are very proud to be raising money for North West Air Ambulance and this challenge should really help boost our donation to them at the end of the year.”
