Dine founder to take on Three Peak Challenge for charity

Dan Gill, the founder of Leeds-based bespoke catering and event management company Dine, is taking on the Three Peak Challenge in aid of the Leeds Community Foundation.

On 18 and 19 June 2016, Dan will attempt the gruelling challenge of climbing Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and Ben Nevis all within 24 hours.

The Leeds Community Foundation brings together local philanthropists with local organisations and community groups who need funding and other resources in order to support good causes in the city.

Dine is a member of the Foundation’s 100 Club and has raised over £15,000 in the past few years to help community projects across the city.

Dan said: “At Dine, we think it is really important to give something back to your local community. I have previously completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks, but wanted to take on a bigger challenge to raise even more money for a cause that is close to my heart.

“I have been in training since the beginning of the year. I climbed Ben Nevis earlier in the year and Scafell Pike just a couple of weeks ago. I also enjoy cycling to work in order to keep fit.”

Sally-Anne Greenfield, chief executive of Leeds Community Foundation, said: “We are extremely lucky to have supporters like Dine who continue to raise money and awareness of the work of the Foundation. We hope people will give generously to spur Dan on in this punishing challenge and help ensure we can continue to support projects which deliver vital services for local people.”
