On Saturday 30 June, a team from Marsden Building Society will be taking on the Three Peaks challenge in a bid to raise money for various charities close to their heart.
The Marsden team, who have just completed a Dragon Boat race to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society, will take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks, a 25 mile walk up the three highest peaks in Yorkshire on 30th June.
Some members of staff taking part are raising money for a range of charities including Pendleside Hospice and Homeless Hounds whereas others have simply set themselves a personal challenge!
The team consists of 11 members of staff from the Marsden’s 8 branches across Lancashire, and training has already begun to prepare for the big day, with team trips up Pendle Hill.
Rob Pheasey, Chief Executive at Marsden Building Society said,
“We are an ambitious and growing society in Lancashire so we thought we’d take that attitude in our personal challenges too and have decided to swap mortgages for mountains and work together to climb the three peaks! We’re really looking forward to taking on the challenge and have been doing plenty of training to prepare- we’ve got our fingers crossed for some good weather!”
