Scaling the heights

Volunteers at The Carver Group took on the 3 Peaks Challenge recently in a bid to raise money for Herriot Hospice Homecare and St Teresa’s Hospice.

 

The team completed the 3 peaks – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – in under 24 hours, which is a major achievement given this included the driving between England, Wales and Scotland.


The 8 people who took part - Henry Carver, David Buckle, Rachel Carver, Tom O'Neil, Gordon Carver, Jack Braley, Chris Farlow and Adam Swalwell - raised a fantastic £1,000 for each charity.


Henry Carver said: “Hiking up the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales is something few people aim to do in a lifetime, but we couldn’t think of a better way to raise money for two very worthy causes.


“Nick and Gordon Carver Estate Agency work within the same areas as both charities, and over the last 25 years we have seen first-hand the invaluable support they have given.


“It was tough going but to complete it in under 24 hours was amazing and we are delighted to have raised so much money.”


*James Carver, the branch manager at the Nick Craver in Richmond and Northallerton, is one of Herriot Hospice Homecare’s Trustees.
