A solider and a group of friends from the Army took on a marathon challenge for St Catherine’s and raised £270!
Lance Corporal Jack Webster and his pals conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, scaling the mountains of Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in less than 12 hours. They completed the fantastic achievement in memory of Jack’s uncle Colin Weaver who was cared for by the hospice last year.
Money was raised through sponsorship and a non-uniform day, along with a special music gig – called Colfest – organised by Colin’s children Sam and Millie.
Jack said: “Along with uncle’s experiences of St Catherine’s, a few years ago I was also a volunteer at the hospice – I know how much hard work the staff have to put in every single day.”
Hayley Jackson, St Catherine’s Hospice fundraiser, said: “We’re extremely proud of Jack and his friends for completing this amazing challenge and would like to say a huge thank you to them and all those who sponsored or supported them. The money raised will help us care for local people facing life-shortening conditions, helping them to have quality of life, to the end of life.”
