Stanton House Conquer The Yorkshire Three Peaks - Raising £11,492 For EducAid
Posting date:26 Jun 2018
Despite the heatwave, the team conquered Yorkshire’s famous three-peaks raising £11,492 for EducAid and transforming the lives of 45 young Sierra Leoneans in the process.
If you haven’t heard of EducAid, it’s a charity on an international mission to provide an education and place of safety to young people in Sierra Leone and the 25-mile walk across Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough was the latest Stanton House challenge in a long line of fundraising events for the charity.
CEO and co-founder of Stanton House, Neil Wilson, led the charity challenge this weekend and said: “It was hard work and particularly tough due to the weather, but it was worth every minute to know that we will be able to help so many more children in Sierra Leone.
“I would like to thank every donor who supported the cause and of course huge congratulations to my fellow hikers who did a tremendous job in not only raising money but keeping the spirit alive and providing a constant reminder of why we took on the challenge to begin with. A proud moment for Stanton House and all that took part.”
Although there were many people involved in making Saturday’s challenge a success – there were nine individuals that made the climb all in the name of charity and without them, we wouldn’t have been able to help so many children.
Congratulations to Neil, Tyler, George, Henry, Josh, Micaela, Danielle, Audrey and Nina who made the climb.
"I have known Kate for years and she has always invested time to develop the relationship even when I am not looking for a new role. Now that time has come it has led to a much easier and in depth conversation around what that next role should look like."
