Pierce employees take on three peaks

Fourteen employees from Pierce have started training ahead of their Yorkshire three peak challenge this summer to raise money for local homeless charity Nightsafe.

Lewis Withnell, Elizabeth Stebbings, Charles Hopkinson, Lisa Kennery, Fred Green, Daniel Burrows, John Corteen, Philip Johnson, David Barker, Gary Speak, Paul Moulding, Thomas Brassey, Scott Hughes and Katie Nicholson-Taylor have joined forces to raise money for charity.

The team will face Pen-y-Ghent at 694 metres tall, followed by Whernside at 736 metres then climb 723 metres up Ingleborough.

Lisa Kennery, payroll manager at Pierce, said: “Last year a group of employees did Tough Mudder and this year we have chosen to do the Yorkshire three peak challenge.

“It is a great team-building activity and will be very worthwhile as we hope to raise lots of money for our chosen local charity, Nightsafe. All team members have shown their dedication to the challenge and everyone at Pierce is right behind the team.

“Nightsafe is based locally to our office in Blackburn and helps support homeless young people aged 16-24 through its day centre, night shelter and supported housing projects. A donation of just £2.00 would provide a young person with their breakfast and £25.00 would pay for a night in the night shelter, so every donation would make a huge difference to a young person.”
