Staff from Dronfield independent financial planners, Belmayne, are preparing to tackle Yorkshire’s three highest peaks to raise charity cash.

The team of six is in training for the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, to benefit the Belmayne Foundation, which is supporting four local charities.

Belmayne’s Three Peaks team comprises partners, Jon Stevens and Martin Birch, financial planner, Chris Pond and his partner, Isabelle O’Leary, Tracey Knight and Laura Birch. Their adventure will take place on September 12 and will see them scale 5,200 feet of ascent up Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales.

All money raised from the challenge will be split equally between the Belmayne Foundation’s nominated charities for 2021, FareShare Yorkshire, Pathways of Chesterfield, Nenna Kind and Helen’s Trust.

Belmayne partner, Martin Birch, said: “We are excited to finally be preparing for our first big fundraiser of the year. We will be setting off before dawn in our attempt to scale all three Yorkshire peaks in one day and hope to complete the challenge in around 12 hours.

“We know small charities have suffered greatly from the Covid restrictions and we hope our efforts will make a real difference to the four supported by the Belmayne Foundation. I would like to thank everyone who has donated so far and encourage as many people as possible to add their backing – it will really spur us on through what will no doubt be a gruelling day!”
