12th April 2016
On Saturday 11th June 2016 McDermott Homes will be taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for charity.
Our selected charity is Pendleside Hospice, which exists to promote and enhance quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers; by delivering specialist and holistic palliative care, which addresses their individually assessed physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. The Hospice currently costs over £3.8 million per year to run. A grant from the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group provides approximately 26% of running costs but the balance, over £2.8 million, has to be raised locally. That is a lot of funds to raise each and every year.
The challenging course covers 24.5 miles with 5600ft in ascent and descent on the Three Peaks of Pen y Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough and we expect to complete it in about 10 hours.
Any donations to this fantastic cause would be greatly appreciated https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/mcdermotthomes3peaks
