Ian Smith, North West MD
A team from Miller Homes North West, leading housebuilder based in Newton-Le-Willows, have accomplished the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 6thJuly. The team of four included Aimie Kitchen, David Ratcliffe, Lauren Pope and Rhiannon D’Arcy, and the challenge was in aid of the company’s charity of the year, Cornerstone.
The team took on the gruelling task of conquering the 24-mile-long and 1585-metre-high ascent up to the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in Yorkshire in under 12 hours.
The Miller team, who had been training since the start of the year, completed the famous challenge in 11 hours and 45 minutes, with the aim of raising £1,000 for homelessness charity Cornerstone. The completion of the charity challenge comes after a further team of 20 from Miller Homes spent the night sleeping outdoors in order to raise funds for the charity and awareness of the realities of rough sleepers.
Cornerstone’s aim is to provide services to help vulnerable and disadvantaged adults regardless of age, gender or ethnicity. Working in partnership with Cornerstone, the team at Miller Homes are striving to ensure that those sleeping rough are provided with a safe place to shelter.
Ian Smith, Managing Director of Miller Homes in the North West, comments: “We’re incredibly proud of Aimie, David, Lauren and Rhiannon for completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for Cornerstone. The successful completion of the challenge is down to months of training - their dedication to supporting Cornerstone in their work to help homeless communities across the North West is truly admirable.”
