Wake Smith solicitors take on Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for charity

Employees from Sheffield’s Wake Smith Solicitors are to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge and climb 1,585 metres to raise funds for a city charity.

Kate Lax, Scott Haslam, Joan Pettingill, Dan Haigh, Paul Gibbon, Neil Salter, Duncan Shepherd, Holly Navarro, Dylan Friend and Jessica Rowbotham will attempt the 26-mile challenge on 18 September.

The walk will take them through the stunning Yorkshire scenery of the Dales National Park for around 12 hours, while raising much needed funds for St Luke’s Hospice. 

Lax,¬†who is a¬†director at¬†Wake Smith¬†and charitable board member, said: ‚ÄúWe‚Äôll start with the smallest of the peaks, Pen-y-ghent,¬†and then tackle the peaks of Ingleborough and¬†Whernside¬†as we make our way across the¬†Pennine¬†range.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúThis is a challenge not for the faint hearted as in total, we will climb an awesome 1,585¬†metres! However,¬†we have our minds set on raising at least ¬£1,000 for this year‚Äôs chosen charity St Luke‚Äôs Hospice through this event, and that will keep us going.‚ÄĚ

St Luke’s cares for people throughout Sheffield with terminal illnesses. The hospice helps to control patients’ symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life, all without charge.
