A team from CCF, distributor of insulation and interior building products, has raised £6,500 for the Alzheimer’s Society. The funds were raised following completion of the Borrowdale Challenge, a multi-activity and endurance course set in the Northern Lake District.
The intrepid CCF employees were spurred on to complete the epic challenge, which included scaling the mountain ridges of Dale Head and plummeting through freezing outdoor water chutes, in order to help the Society’s important work with those affected by dementia.
Steve Quarrington, CCF regional director and Borrowdale Challenge participant, said: “It was a tough challenge but a great experience for myself and colleagues who are all very passionate about fundraising. In fact, over the last five years we have completed the National Three Peaks Challenge, Commando Challenge, Beat the Moon Challenge and Tough Mudder challenge – raising over £50k for charitable causes in the process.”
Hannah Wright, senior regional fundraiser at the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are delighted that CCF employees continue to challenge and put themselves through their paces in order to support the Alzheimer’s Society. This invaluable support will enable us to continue our work to improve the lives of those living with dementia.”
The wider CCF branch network will be taking on various fundraising activities in 2015 in a bid to raise as much money as possible for the Alzheimer’s Society over the next year.
