Trio kicks off Three Peaks mission

The first of three teams from the Leeds office of investment management and stockbroking firm Redmayne Bentley has conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks in support of an area mental health charity.
Rebecca Moorby, Letty Thomas and Brogan Hirst raised more than £1,000 for Leeds Mind when they tackled Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

Rebecca, who lives in Barnsley and is a Communications Executive at the firm, said: “We arrived at Horton-in-Ribblesdale around 7.30am and, after meeting our group and guide, we donned our walking boots and coats and began our walk-up Pen-y-ghent. It took us around an hour and a half to reach the top, but after a quick snack break, and a few selfies, we began our descent for the next Peak.

“Whernside was an eight-mile walk from Pen-y-ghent, but the climb was much easier – half way up we had to leave our group due to an injury to another group member and took on the rest of the trip on our own, we then picked up pace and made it down the very steep descent in around an hour. As we knew we only had one mountain left, we became women on missions and dashed our way there.

“Ingleborough was definitely something else – after the dreaded scramble and slips and trips, we made it to the top in good time, and in very good spirits, because we knew it was all nearly over! All in all, the day was great and we completed the whole challenge in 11 hours and 10 minutes. We raised between us a total of £1,020 for Leeds Mind, which we are hugely proud of.”

In September, two further teams from the Bond Court office will follow in their footsteps. Alistair Mancrief, Sarah Stead, Ellie Fahy and Rachael Crabtree will climb the three hills on 8th September while Lucy Greenbank, Simon Chruscht and Gareth Stokle will complete the hike on 23rd September.

The organisation is the Leeds office chosen charity for 2018, with staff in Bond Court holding a variety of events, ranging from 10k runs to dress down days and office bake-offs. 

Kate Goldring, Business Development Director for the charity, commented: “We are so proud to have the support of the team at Redmayne Bentley. Mental health is a subject that is increasingly on the radar for businesses in Leeds which not only helps to raise awareness, but generates much needed income to help us to deliver even more services. We can’t thank the teams tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks enough and all the team at Redmayne Bentley.”
