Online number plate retailer Number 1 Plates are delighted to reveal that they have raised an incredible £1909.00 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Mission Motorsport after having completed the gruelling Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge.
The Guiseley-based business received donations from customers throughout July and August, as well as contributions from business contacts and the general public via social media, and completed the 24 mile trek on Thursday 26th August. The challenging hike took the team exactly 11 hours to complete, which includes time stopped at the summit of each peak to take in the spectacular views.
On the achievement, Aldan Ibbetson, managing director said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge and to have raised such a fantastic amount for two very worthy causes.
“We’ve been building up to the challenge for a couple of months, and the support we have seen from our customers, suppliers and the general public has been extremely encouraging, and we’re grateful for all of the donations we have received.
“I’ve got to extend my thanks and congratulations to our team as well, as without their heroic efforts on what turned out to be a tougher hike than some expected, we couldn’t have raised so much!”
The total amount will then be split in half between Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Mission Motorsport, with the two receiving a cheque for equal amounts.
