Chamber Staff Complete Gruelling Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
26th June 2017
Sheffield Chamber staff members Thomas Sutton (Head of Membership), Elizabeth Espy (Account Manager) and Sam Christmas (Events Manager) has successfully completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, to help raise vital funds for the Chamber's Charity of the Year, Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
The team completed the challenge in an exceptional time of 9 hours 31 minutes, coming in well below the targeted time of 12 hours. On completing the challenge, Sam Christmas said -The Chamber have always been committed to supporting local charities and undertaking fundraising activities and this was one of the toughest challenges yet. It was extremely testing both physically and mentally due to the severe weather conditions at each summit; it really pushed our bodies to the limit." He continued, -We are extremely proud to have completed this challenge as a team, and to have reached our fundraising target, all of which has been donated to Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, to help support the extraordinary work they do. The Chamber team raised almost £500 for Bluebell Wood Children's hospice which offers care and support to children with a shortened life expectancy, both in their own homes and at Bluebell Wood. Sheffield Chamber would like to congratulate Elizabeth, Tom and Sam for their incredible achievement and wish them well for future activities.
