The Fourth Peak

We embarked on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge on Saturday 11th; it was a great effort by the team, who managed to complete the walk in less than 10 hours with no twists, sprains or breaks to report!

We were faced with some tough challenges on the day and the weather was not on our side! We had some patches of sunshine, but mostly rain which meant we had to watch our feet, be careful not to slip or become submerged in mud and take very cautious steps on the descent! Even on a misty day, the views were wonderful and so too was the sense of achievement once we reached the top of Ingleborough.

Thank you to all involved and well done team. We have now raised over £600 for Candlelighters, which is fantastic-and growing.

Candlelighters was established in 1976, is a charity formed and run by parents of children who have or have had cancer, ex-patients and the medical staff who treat them. The Connect Yorkshire and techmesh team were passionate to support a local charity as our ethos is to support regional businesses.

We are still rallying round for donations, so you have still time to support us please dig deep and make your donations today by visiting www.justgiving.com/Connect-Yorkshire

The Fourth Peak presents our biggest challenge yet, it is fast approaching – techmesh IT and Telecoms Expo on the 30th of September at the Royal Armouries, Leeds.

We have been working hard to attract local businesses, in particular IT managers, CEO and MD to join us on the day to meet Yorkshires IT and Telecoms businesses. There has not been an event like this in Yorkshire for 5 years, so we need everyone’s support in making this event a huge success.
