Inspiring Members ‘doing it for charity’ !!!!

The Recipro Team are attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care on the 30th June 2012. 

The Challenge will take us over the three highest peaks in Yorkshire:

Pen-y-ghent – 2,277ft

Whernside – 2,415ft

Ingleborough – 2,375ft

It’s going to be a really tough challenge for the six of us, but it is a really worthy cause and I’m actually looking forward to it!

Our chosen charity is Marie Curie Cancer Care and we’d appreciate all donations no matter how small to help this worthwhile cause.  They need to raise £10,000 every hour of every day to carry on their valuable care for terminally ill patients.  Marie Curie has 2,000 nurses in the UK and last year they worked for 1,200,000 hours caring for terminally ill patients, including half of all cancer patients who die at home.

They also have nine hospices and are the biggest provider of hospice beds outside the NHS. In total, Marie Curie spends over £80 million a year on its charitable activities of providing care as well as on research and development. The figure is overwhelming, but so is the comfort that the money can provide.

We’d really appreciate any donation you can give us, and you can donate on our Just Giving Page – www.justgiving.com/thereciprochallenge

 

Many Thanks on behalf of the whole Recipro Team
