Wind, rain, blisters and UK holiday traffic all attempted to thwart Deco-Pak’s Three Peaks Challenge this past weekend (23-24 July) but the team were victorious in their efforts. Now it’s time for you to dig deep to help the team reach their fundraising target to help Greenfingers to create even more therapeutic garden spaces at children’s hospices across the country.
Not many of us would be brave enough to tackle the three tallest mountain peaks within England, Scotland and Wales – Scarfell Pike – 978m, Ben Nevis – 1345m and Snowdon – 1085m - but Deco-Pak’s Marketing Director, Craig Hall, alongside Dan Gough and Ross Baxter, did just this. The best bit, they did it within 24 hours. 23hours and 55mins to be exact, and that includes over 11 hours driving between Fort William to Seascale in the Lake District, before finishing at Caernafon in North Wales.
So far, the brave adventurers have raised 56% of their fundraising total and are now asking the garden retail sector to consider digging deeper to smash through the £500 fundraising target.
Craig Hall said: “What a way to spend 24 hours. I won’t lie, it was tough at times but we got through it and are so pleased that we were able to spread the word regarding Greenfingers along the way.
“A huge thank you to all of those that have donated so far, it really did help keep us going this weekend. We appreciate that times are tough at the moment but even the smallest donation makes a huge difference so we’re asking for a donation of just £3.24 – to mark the conquering of three mountains in 24 hours. Of course, we’ll happily accept larger donations! But know that every penny donated will make a huge difference in helping the Greenfingers charity to build gardens in children’s hospices. These spaces are so important to the children, families and staff that work and live in these hospices so being able to contribute anything to their continued development is hugely meaningful to all of us at Deco-Pak.”
