Three Peaks Challenge
On Saturday 20th July three of the Powell Joinery Team donned walking boots and waterproofs to take on The Yorkshire Three Peaks.
The challenge to walk the 24.5 mile triangular route taking in Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent was organised to raise money for SANDS stillbirth and neonatal death charity.
Touched by the experience of close family and friends, Danny as a new father felt their tragic loss but couldn’t help them directly. He set about arranging this event to show his support and to give back to the charity that offers comfort to people affected by baby loss.
They completed the peaks in under 12 hours, raising over £1600 for the worthy cause.

Danny said: I’m really proud of everyone who took part and the generosity received. We started off with a target of £250, which we smashed on the first day. The challenge was harder than expected but it was made easier by the upbeat spirit of those taking part.
Sam said: It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. The soles of my feet feel like I’ve walked over hot coals.
Ant said: I would like to do it again, but maybe one at a time.
