More than twenty employees from Preston-based Conlon Construction are set to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for local homeless charity, Emmaus Preston.
The 24 mile, 5,202ft challenge will be one of the most gruelling many of the participants will have faced. The firm is aiming to raise £1 for every foot climbed.
Conlon appointed Emmaus Preston as its charity of the year for 2016 and the challenge is one of many initiatives planned throughout the year.
Emmaus offers formerly homeless people a home and opportunities to work. Residents work full-time on the community business, renovating and re-selling donated furniture.
Darren Lee, commercial director at Conlon Construction, said: “Emmaus is a fantastic cause. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is notoriously tough but everyone participating can’t wait to get their hiking boots on and do their bit for charity.”
Stephen Buchanan, project director at Emmaus Preston, said: “Donations are extremely important to the charity and we simply wouldn’t survive without them.
“We are extremely grateful to Conlon Construction, not only for participating in this challenge on our behalf, but also for its commitment to support the cause until the end of the year.”
