Team L&T completes single-day 25km charity trek for Ukraine

23rd September 2022

 

A brave group of hikers from Lee & Thompson completed a tough physical challenge last week in the Peak District, climbing nearly 3,000 feet over a 25km distance to raise money for the evolving humanitarian effort in Ukraine. We trekked to support the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal (our current Charity of the Year). The group of 25 began between Hope and Castleton and before long, ascended onto the dales via the renown steep limestone valley. Next in their sights was the ascent of Mam Tor then the dramatic Edale valley edge horseshoe and challenging descent into Edale. Finally, the group hiked over Hollins Cross to complete the challenge into Hope Valley.
