The team of staff from Howarth Timber who completed the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge.

Howarth staff reach new heights

Published:  27 August, 2013

Howarth Timber Group’s dedicated staff have once again shown they’re up for a challenge, having successfully taken on Yorkshire’s three highest peaks, raising over £5,500 for its partner charity, Caudwell Children.

The team of 33 took to the hills of Yorkshire to tackle the mighty 26-mile trek up and down three mountains, through rough terrain, and in seriously challenging weather conditions - including zero visibility, driving sleet and buckets of rain. Grit, determination and camaraderie won through with the vast majority of the team completing the course and achieving a good time.

Caudwell Children, Howarth Timber’s chosen charity for 2013, is dedicated to transforming the lives of disabled children and their families across the UK by providing practical and emotional support and Howarth Timber has wasted little time in lending its support through a programme of planned fundraising activities this year.

Mark Terry, Howarth Timber’s national sales manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the way the whole business has got behind our charity efforts this year with Caudwell Children, not least the determined individuals who tackled the daunting three peak challenge. I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all who took part and thank everyone who has donated and supported us.”
