Five Ripon businessmen tackled the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for charity.
Chairman of Potter Group Logistics, Derrick Potter, and directors Matthew Lamb, Stuart Taylor, Jim Thomson and Ken Watson set their sights on the challenge to raise funds for Help for Heroes. The team took on the challenge which covers 24 miles including three peaks of the Pennine range, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingelborough; a total climb of around 7,000 ft.
Leading the team was the Melmerby based company’s managing director, Matthew Lamb. He said: “As a Yorkshire based company, we decided what better way to raise money this year than by walking the stunning Three Peaks that we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep.”
The walkers chose Help for Heroes as Ripon has a long historical connection with the Army.
