As 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.
On Wednesday 26th August 2009, the team 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 was 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 fantastic £250.00 in donations for the same event from Andy Stant, who works at the NWAS Emergency Control Centre.
Today we are very happy to report the receipt of a further £135.00 donation from Charlotte Baker, an Emergency Medical Despatcher at NWAS (Manchester) Belle Vue Emergency Control Centre, arising from the same event, which now takes the grand total raised by NWAS (Manchester) Belle Vue staff for the team to a fantastic £550.00.
It 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.
