Five local property professionals are attempting an arduous challenge in aid of Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) next month.
Richard Channing, Isabella Deacon and Sue Dyer of Atwell Martin and Emma Faraday and Richard Keen of Hertford Investors will be aiming to complete the National Three Peaks Challenge on Thursday June 30.
The trial involves climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District and Mount Snowdon in Wales – all within 24 hours.
The team is expected to travel more than 450 miles, walk 25 miles and climb around 10,000 feet.
Atwell Martin Partner Sue Dyer says: “We wanted to do something special to raise awareness and funds for the incredible work of Children’s Hospice South West.”
The Barbican-based property company has chosen CHSW as its charity of the year and the Three Peaks Challenge forms part of a year of activities.
Sue adds: “This is the first time we have nominated a chosen charity and we’re really pleased to be supporting CHSW, particularly during their silver anniversary year.”
The charity operates three hospices in Cornwall, North Devon and North Somerset and provides care for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families. Its mission is simply to make the most of short and precious lives.
The residential estates and lettings agency has already sponsored the CHSW spring newsletter – distributed to more than 55,000 people and organised a charity quiz night.
In April, Partnership Secretary Richard Channing completed the Plymouth Half Marathon.
The team will post details of their progress on the Atwell Martin Twitter and Facebook pages and donations can be made via https://www.justgiving.com/AtwellMartinPlymouth/
