JCT600 colleagues take part in Three Peaks challenge for Alzheimer’s Society
Last Saturday (18 July) saw staff climb 5,000ft as part of the company’s annual Three Peaks challenge which this year is raising funds for Alzheimer’s Society.
A team from the Yorkshire-based car retailer, comprising directors, management and colleagues from JCT600’s Bradford head office as well as from most of the company’s 50 dealerships , completed the 24.5 mile walk which starts in Horton-in-Ribblesdale before scaling the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
“Although, having undertaken this gruelling walk up the county’s three highest peaks for the last five years, we know what to expect, it’s always a challenge,” commented John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600. “Fortunately, with our dealerships spread from Yorkshire and the North East to Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, it’s also a great opportunity to bring colleagues together. There’s always plenty of friendly rivalry, but everyone is united in wanting to raise funds for our chosen charity of the year.
“Once again, the team has pulled out all the stops with an amazing range of fundraising stunts for Alzheimer’s Society throughout the year. Thanks to the continued enthusiasm of the JCT600 team, we’ve already raised over £30,000 for the charity and we hope to raise even more over the next five months!”
