Seven employees from Finance, Operations and Marketing departments, as well as three additional family members and friends, took on the challenge of trekking 24 miles across the Yorkshire Three Peaks. Covering Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, staff at XL Joinery reached 1,585m in height, with the aim of completing the course in just eight hours.

Buttercup Children’s Trust raises funds to support children and their families within the UK who suffer from a wide range of life hindering illnesses including leukaemia, cystic fibrosis deafness, blindness and all other serious or terminal illnesses. The children’s charity relies solely on donations and all proceeds raised from XL Joinery’s charity walk went towards the charity.

Buttercup Children’s Charity, commented: “We’re delighted to have received support from XL Joinery and their incredible donation will help us to continue to support children who are suffering with serious illnesses. The staff at XL Joinery took on a very admirable challenge and hope that they have fully recovered from the walk!”
