    On the 6th of September a team from EE will be undertaking the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in support of our chosen charity this year, The Mavis Nye Foundation.

    Mavis Nye was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2009, and given 3 months to live. After years of treatment and management of the disease, she is now the founder and president of her own charity. The aim of the foundation is to offer support to mesothelioma victims and fund research in drug development. One of the main objectives of the charity is to support the funding for Student Nurses and Doctors to specialise in the field of mesothelioma.

    Over the next 12-18 months we aim to raise £10,000 so that we may assist Mavis in sponsoring one of the aforementioned nurses.

    The Yorkshire Three Peaks is the first of several fundraising activities planned over the next few months and sets the bar pretty high! The challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, which form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. In summary the Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km), and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent and must be completed in under 12 hours.

    We have set up the following Justgiving page to raise funds for the event

    Any donation would be  greatly appreciated, helping us reach our goal and assisting Mavis with such vital funding.

    Kind regards,
