HB&O reaches new heights with charity challenge

Led by Managing Director Mark Ashfield, sixteen members of staff of Leamington and Coventry based firm HB&O took part and completed this gruelling one day challenge, by climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks on Saturday 14 September. The Yorkshire Dales walk is a circular twenty five miles walk of the hills, with an elevation of over 1500m. 

Alex Clarke, Jatinder Hayer and Fred Gorvin were the quickest team members, completing the challenge in nine hours and twenty minutes. Over £4000 was raised for the chosen charity- The Myton Hospices, a vital local provision, with hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick, providing care for adults with terminal illness. 

Mark commented “I am so proud of the grit and determination of each and every team member. They pulled together to support each other when times were hard to complete this tough challenge, with the aim of raising money to support a great local cause”.
