On the 10th September 2022, eight members of the Hemisphere Freight team are going to be taking on the challenge of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
The Yorkshire 3 peaks are the mountains of Whernside (736 m or 2,415 ft), Ingleborough (723 m or 2,372 ft) and Pen-y-ghent (694 m or 2,277 ft) and we have challenged our team to complete the circular route, climbing all three mountains in 12 hours.
Why are we doing this?
We’re not only challenging our team for fun, but we will be doing this to raise money for Inspire.
Inspire believe EVERY young person, no matter the barriers they face, or the past trauma they have endured, should be given the opportunity to achieve great things in life.
They champion the county’s youth, helping them transform their lives and build bright futures, so they are not just ready for work but ready for the world.
Each day, Inspire work at the forefront of helping young people in Suffolk to overcome barriers so they can take positive steps forward. Whether it’s gaining a sense of independence, building their employability and confidence, or learning to manage their mental health in a positive way, they want the next generation to feel empowered to raise their voices, achieve their ambitions, and realise their potential. In the current climate, this has never been more vital.
Terry Baxter, CEO of Inspire, said, “We are delighted that Hemisphere Freight have chosen to support us once again by taking on this monumental challenge. Over the years, they have championed our young people in many ways but this just might be their most ambitious challenge yet! We’ll be cheering them on every step of the way.”
Who’s taking part?
This year, we’ve roped in some members of our Business Development team, Marcus Harden and Katie Murphy, Company Director, Louis Perrin. Project Logistics team members, Jack Reddington, Faye Maconochie Alves, Import Ocean Freight experts Sam Penfold and Kimberley Cole and Import Logistics Solutions expert Lauren Davey. We’ll be driving up as a team the night before and starting our journey at 6am.
