Employees from Amaray, Corby presented Lakelands Hospice with a cheque for £22,000 following their fundraising activities earlier this summer.
As part of Amaray’s ongoing support to help Lakelands Hospice, 12 employees accepted the Three Peaks Challenge to climb the UK’s three largest mountains to raise funds for Lakelands increasing operational costs. The employees were motivated to explore activities beyond individual sponsorship and completed multiple fundraising initiatives, such as car washing, marketplace sales, cake sales, raffles, and attended car boots to raise as much money as possible.
After completing the challenge on 7th September, sponsorship monies were collected and presented to Paul Marlow, Lakelands Hospice fundraising manager on the 7th November by Amaray employees.
Lakelands Hospice is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses. The hospice honours people’s right to dignity and respect during all stages of their illness, by improving the quality of life of all hospice attendees and their families.
The Three Peaks Challenge itself involves climbing three mountains; Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowden hiking 24 miles within 24 hours.
