Skipton-based Rural Solutions has raised £2,255 for local cause, Wil’s Wishes, by completing the National Three Peaks in 23 hours and 34 minutes – a new record for the team.

Climbing over 10,000ft Ben Nevis (1345m/ 4413ft), Scafell Pike (978m/ 3209ft), Snowdon (1085m/ 3560ft), and nearly 1,000 miles of driving many coffees were drunk, mint cake and biscuits were eaten!

William Fry, managing director of Rural Solutions, said: “We are always delighted to support local and national charities through our fundraising efforts. This is our opportunity to give something back.

“The support and enthusiasm from all of the 31-strong team at Rural Solutions has been wonderful and we’ve had a lot of fun taking part in these fundraising activities. I hope the Team’s blisters and sore legs have recovered!

The Wil’s Wishes organisation from Lancashire is a charity set up in memory of Wil Handford by his family, to raise awareness of bowel cancer, help those affected by terminal illness and support financially the educational needs of underprivileged children.

The charity do amazing work with local schools and have made a huge difference to the lives of people they have helped. This inspiring cause is close to a number of colleagues who knew Wil, who lost his battle with the disease in 2015 at just 24.

Rural Solutions also have chosen to support Macmillan Cancer Support throughout 2018, over £200 so far with a charity cricket match and fundraising with regular bake sales.

Rural Solutions provide planning and development support and advice to landowners and rural businesses to help them adapt and develop their businesses.
