Covid-19 has had an undeniable impact on the charity sector. Charities across the country are facing huge economic pressure with an estimated £4.3 billion in income being lost because of the inability for normal fund-raising events to take place during the pandemic. Some charities will, inevitably, close and those who survive will face a struggle to adapt to decreased funding.
Colleagues from Noble Foods have risen to the challenge and have joined forces with some of our customers to endeavour to complete the National Three Peaks and Cycle Challenge, between Saturday 25th September and Saturday 2nd October 2021.
The Team are aiming to raise £50,000 which will be split equally between Cancer Research and the John Eastwood Hospice. Both charities are extremely important to everyone at Noble Foods following the tragic loss of our Site Operations Manager at Belle Eau Park Mill, Mark Lewis, who lost his battle with cancer in 2018.
Our team members are Bob Lilliman, Richard Gartside, Tom Anderson, Jonty Hay, Tim Shetliffe, Andrew Screech and Nikki King.
This huge feat will comprise of, not only climbing our National Three Peaks, but cycling to and from each one. The challenge will involve over 28,000 ft of climbing on foot and by bike and 500 miles of cycling between the peaks. The above team will be supported by other Noble colleagues on each of the mountain climbs.
