The final weekend of May saw two incredible events take place for the Fine & Country Foundation, but challenges like these don’t always go to plan…
Pedalling on: Bury St Edmunds 200 mile sponsored cycle
Four members from Fine & Country Bury St Edmunds cycled 200 miles to York in just two and a half days. The weather was on their side and they had a fantastic time. Neil Petit and Yannis Prodromou enjoyed the occasional sprint race, while Kelly Law and Bobbi Findlay took the opportunity to casually ride along and chat. Despite Bobbi crashing into Kelly only three miles from the finish line, the journey was smooth and successful. We are very pleased to announce that the team raised an amazing &1,725 for homelessness.
Wellies or Walking Boots?: The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge was our second event in May, which ran into some unexpected turns. The 13 participants formed the Peaky Blinders who marched their way up Pen-y-ghent in good spirits. As the team approached the second peak, Whernside, the weather turned. The clouds descended and hail began to storm down on the group as they made their descent. They began to climb the final peak but were strongly recommended to turn back by a guide. Drenched, cold and exhausted, the Peaky Blinders turned back and were unable to finish. However, due to a slight navigational issue they they walked the full 24 miles despite not completing Ingleborough. Nevertheless, we are all incredibly proud of the team who raised &1,968.86 for homelessness.
