Skiddaw is the fourth highest mountain in England; our team will be taking part in a midnight challenge that will see them tackle the long, rocky, gradual climb to its summit whilst raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society!
This 10 mile trek will take place on 19th June and is likely to take anywhere between 6 and 9 hours.
Although the team involved will witness some breath-taking views and picturesque landscapes they’ll also be exposed to high winds and unpredictable weather conditions!
“My father sadly passed away 7 years ago after a long battle with dementia at the age of 72. For most of the previous 10 years he was unable to communicate with his family effectively, and struggled to recognise us. Bill Simpson was an intelligent and energetic man who founded Simpson Group, and laid the foundations for the company it is today. I personally have a lot to thank him for. The business he left has a positive impact on many families in our community. This is his legacy.” – Mark Simpson
