As #article#2374#previously reported# in March 2009, several members of staff from NWAS (Manchester) undertook the gruelling UK “3 Peaks” challenge recently, ascending Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon in one continuous 24 hour period.
Today the team has received two fantastic amounts of money; firstly, £55.00 collected from the charity box which was setup for the team at the NWAS (Manchester) Belle Vue Emergency Control Centre. Secondly a sum of £110.00 has been received, in donations pledged to Alex Taylor, who is the daughter of Team member Fred Taylor, an Emergency Medical Dispatcher at the centre.
The team also received a whopping £250 in donations for the same event from Andy Stant, who works at the NWAS Emergency Control Centre.
It probably goes without saying that the team is very grateful for the sponsorship raised by all who undertook the walk and of course the money pledged by NWAS colleagues, friends and family of those who took part in this challenging event.
With a few donations still to come in, the staff have already raised £415.00 for the team. We will report the final amounts our website when they are known.
