Staff from Preston-based financial advisory group, Taylor Patterson, will be putting on their walking boots and tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 29 June to raise money for their chosen charity of the year, The Space Centre.
Gillian Bardin, Chris Bardin, Jason Street, James Thompson, Keith Pressler and Rachel Harper will take on three of the highest peaks in Yorkshire, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, aiming to cover almost 25 miles in under 12 hours.
Louise Potter, chairman of the Taylor Patterson charity committee, said: “Training is well underway with two practice walks already completed, preparing our staff for the tough challenge ahead.
“Having conquered Pen-y-ghent in April and then Whernside and Ingleborough in May, I am confident that all participants will make it round the challenging course, and definitely have fun along the way.”
Taylor Patterson director, Keith Pressler, who has completed the training walks, commented: “With plenty of willpower, teamwork and lots of high-energy snacks, it will be a real achievement for everyone to complete the challenge and have a great day raising money for a very important local charity.” Read More
