Throughout 2014 Hatchers have got a calendar full of fundraising activities organised, so far we have held a ‘Ramp up the Red’ dress down day, cake sale and pancake day with ‘the most pancake tosses in a minute’ competition.
Our most recent effort has been a sponsored slim where Hatchers match the amount of weight lost £ for lb, a group of 9 members of staff started slimming on the 14 January and we held our last weigh in on 4 March. In total we lost 74lbs and in turn added £74 to our fundraising total.
Our ‘biggest losers’ were Jessie Hinds and Alun Williams, losing 47lbs between them. We have raised £310 so far and have lots more planned for the coming months. A team of staff have already started training for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in July where they will aim to walk 25 miles in 12 hours over three of the highest peaks in Yorkshire; Pen Y Ghent (694 metres); Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres).
