WALKERS Adam Frith and Jack Deakin have raised more than £1,000 for our patient care after completing a tough 24 mile walking challenge in tribute to our 24 hour care for the people of Sheffield.
Adam’s dad Stephen was a patient at St Luke’s and it was following his death that Adam pledged to raise money in recognition of the care and support the family received.
Adam, who works for South Yorkshire Police, was joined by friend and colleague Jack Deakin for the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, which takes walkers through the stunning Yorkshire scenery of the Dales National Park, starting with smallest of the peaks, Pen-y-ghent, before going on over 12 hours to tackle the peaks of Ingleborough and Whernside, climbing a final total of 1,585 metres!
Adam, who lives in Chapeltown, and Jack, who lives in Bolton upon Dearne, set themselves a £1,000 target and by the time they crossed the finish line they were delighted to have reached a total of £1,068.
“We are so pleased that Adam and Jack completed the challenge and raised so much money for out patient care,” said our Community Fundraiser Ellie Matthews.
“They can be assured that every step they took and every penny they raised really will make a massive difference to the lives of all the patients and families we support, not only at the hospice but throughout the whole of Sheffield.”
