A four strong team from the Leeds office of law firm hlw Keeble Hawson stepped out to raise over £900 for St Gemma’s Hospice after successfully completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

Stacey Evans, chartered legal executive, said:
“We wanted to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks as we felt it would be a genuine challenge – which it certainly was! However we thoroughly enjoyed the walk and were pleased to have raised funds for such a worthwhile cause.”
