Bradford Hospitals’ Charity is calling on NHS staff and supporters to conquer the Yorkshire Three Peaks this year.

Last year, around 40 staff, their families, and grateful patients from across Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust raised £15,000 for NHS charity funds when they took on the challenge.

This year’s event, which will include hiking 24 miles up Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough, will take place on 10 September. Walkers aim to complete the challenge in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in under 12 hours.

Hayley Collis, Head of Fundraising for Bradford Hospitals’ Charity, said: “Last year’s event was a truly extraordinary day. Many of our walkers took part for very personal reasons, some because it was on their bucket list, and many because they felt it was important to be part of a team and they wanted to support their work family by giving back to our hospital charity, which has supported them so much during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Walking is excellent for a morale and mental health boost, so we would encourage members of the public to sign up too to support our NHS colleagues.

“The camaraderie and team spirit last year was just extraordinary and we guarantee that if you sign up this year, it will be another very special event to be part of.”

You can sign up as an individual or a team. For an informal chat, please call our charity team on 01274 274809 or email charity@bthft.nhs.uk
