A 35-strong squad from Cordant Group took on their steepest challenge to date as they embarked on a fundraising climb. The team took on the gruelling Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge as it raises money for Centrepoint, the UK's leading youth homelessness charity.
The party - which included many of the managing directors from Cordant Group’s businesses - faced the challenge of climbing the summit of Pen-y-ghent (694m; 2,227 ft), Whernside (736 m; 2415 ft) and Ingleborough (723m; 2,372ft) in less than 12 hours.
At beginning of the year, Cordant People launched a year-long partnership with Centrepoint and set a fundraising target of £10,000 for 2019, which it aims to meet through various events.
Kelly Kendall, managing director at Cordant People, said: “Centrepoint provides accommodation, health support, life skills and opportunities to get young homeless people back into education, training and employment. We are honoured to take on this steep challenge in order to raise important funds for such a worthwhile cause. It is absolutely fantastic that we have managed to assemble such a strong team of willing participants. We will look to support each other all the way!”
