My Home Move participated in the 10 Peaks ChallengeMay 22, 2013
Energetic members of the UK’s largest conveyancing company My Home Move, participated in the 10 Peaks Challenge last weekend (18th May 2013) to raise money for their 3 adopted charities. 20 people from the Leicester-based firm took to the mountains despite adverse weather conditions and climbed the 10 peaks (a total of 14 miles!) in just over 10 hours. A great result considering the tough terrain facing some of the more novice walkers.
Rob Gurney, Head of Legal Practice at My Home Move and organiser of the event said “Visibility was incredibly poor up on the mountains, but each and every one of my brave My Home Move colleagues battled on regardless – spurred on by the thought of how our 3 adopted charities will benefit from the sponsorship money being raised. I am so proud to be a part of the My Home Move team”.
Sponsorship pledged by family and friends will raise over £2000 which will go towards supporting 3 charities which includes The Bridge – a local charity working to develop sustainable housing solutions for the homeless throughout Leicestershire. Last year My Home Move raised £1200 to help support The Bridge’s Christmas programme providing the homeless with food, drink and sleeping bags.
Money raised will also go to the Peristera Orphanage in Sri Lanka and the Snehalaya Children’s Home in India. My Home Move’s donations help to give stability to these vulnerable children, as well as provide them with basic essentials such as electricity and running water.
Doug Crawford, Chief Executive said “it’s great to see the dedication from people at My Home Move and the commitment they give to help not just the local community, but the orphanages we support. We have all witnessed the difference our donations can make.”
To date, My Home Move has raised over £12,500 for these charities and is already planning another mountaineering challenge for 2014.
