Business women from two Doncaster companies have trekked the mountainous terrain of Yorkshire in aid of Doncaster charity, Evestrust, and raised over £350.
Sarah Barsby of healthcare protection products manufacturer Intastop Ltd and Helen Dillon-Pearson of local marketing company, Flourish Marketing & PR, along with Intastop’s marketing manager, Marie Hanby, receptionist Cath Purser and Commercial Director Alison Ramsay climbed the 3 peaks of Yorkshire in just over 12 hours.
Sarah Barsby commented: “Intastop is a company driven by helping others, in the products we develop and manufacture through to the numerous charity events we organise and take part in. We know that Helen from Flourish is of the same mind as us so what better way than to join forces and do something for Eve’s Trust of which we know do a great job in supporting local people touched by life changing circumstances.”
Evestrust is a charity founded by Doncaster people to help Doncaster people. The monies raised by the charity are given to those that are suffering with serious or terminally ill cancer for help towards fulfilling a dream or granting a wish.
Clynton Johnson Co founder of The Eve Merton Dreams Trust commented: “The money raised by Intastop and Flourish will go directly to helping us provide a dream for a cancer patient in Doncaster, as we are a non profit charity all funds go towards providing these dreams for people when they really need something to make them smile.”
Helen Dillon-Pearson, Director of Flourish Marketing and PR commented: “It was a tough challenge but not as difficult as those challenges faced by the people supported by Eve’s Trust. We are really grateful to all our sponsors in helping us to raise over £350.”
The Yorkshire Three Peaks takes in some of the most picturesque scenery the county has to offer. Starting at Pen-y-ghent the 25 mile trek takes in Whernside and Ingleborough which form part of the Pennine range encircling the head of the valley of the Ribble River in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
