Wake Smith conquer Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

23rd September 2021

Adventurous employees from Sheffield’s Wake Smith Solicitors completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

Adventurous employees from Sheffield’s Wake Smith Solicitors completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in less than 12 hours to raise more than £1,800 for a city charity.

Kate Lax, Scott Haslam, Dan Haigh, Paul Gibbon, Neil Salter, Duncan Shepherd, Holly Navarro, Dylan Friend and Jessica Rowbotham successfully finished the 24-mile challenge, climbing more than 1,585 metres.

The walk through the stunning Yorkshire scenery of the Dales National Park to include Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, was part of the firm’s annual fundraising campaign for St Luke’s Hospice.

Kate Lax, director at Wake Smith and charitable board member, said: “It was an incredibly tough challenge but we managed to complete all three peaks in under 12 hours. 

“By far, the hardest physical challenge I certainly have ever faced, but we had a good team who supported one another through to the end. We are all certainly feeling it today!

“This was an amazing effort from our team and we have managed to raise an impressive £1,800 which is a phenomenal amount, so well done to everyone.”

St Luke’s cares for people throughout Sheffield with terminal illnesses. They help to control patients’ symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life all without charge.
