My Home Move ‘supertrekkers’ raise thousands for charityJune 25, 2014
14 intrepid ‘supertrekkers’ from the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services, My Home Move, recently completed the 7 Peaks Challenge to raise over £3,300 for charity.
The team of conveyancers and legal support staff travelled to the Lake District to take on the 7 Peak Challenge; including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, and the 4th, 5th and 6th highest peaks on the 31st May 2014. They completed the 13 mile circuit in less than nine hours, shaving 60 minutes off their estimated time.
Speaking after the event, team organiser Rob Gurney said, “I am so proud of the team and the tremendous effort they all put in. Not only did they give up their free time, climb a staggering 4,684 feet with few of them being more than weekend trekkers, but they also raised an amazing £3,300 for the My Home Move Charitable Trust. Through the Trust we are able to support charities in the communities in which we operate.”
The My Home Move Charitable Trust was set up in 2013, to bring together the range of charitable activities being conducted across the company. It currently supports The Bridge Homeless Shelter in Leicester which provides a warm and safe place for many of the city’s homeless; The Snehalaya Children’s Home in India which cares for 50 children with multiple disabilities; and The Peristera Orphanage in Sri Lanka which provides a home for 40 abandoned children.
Last year the Trust raised over £7,000 thanks to a combination of charity treks, fundraising events and payroll giving. Through the generosity of the staff, their friends and families, My Home Move is set to increase this amount to raise over £10,000 by the end of 2014.
My Home Move is always looking for talented, professional and customer-focused people to join its conveyancing teams. It is a company that is passionate about putting its customers first and giving back to the communities in which it operates.
