Westminster Homecare joined the Care Workers Charity to complete their annual challenge event. This year’s annual fundraiser saw 90 people from across the care sector take part in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge.

Our route covered twenty-four and a half miles, including 1585 meters of ascent over the Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside hills. The team from Westminster Homecare joined 17 other teams who took on this demanding route through the breath-taking British countryside against the clock, with only 12 hours to conquer steep climbs while battling the elements.

This year’s challenge raised an impressive total of £35,698!

Alex Ramamurthy, CEO at the Care Workers Charity said: ‘I’m incredibly proud of and thankful to all those who participated in our annual challenge. This was one of the toughest challenges I have ever taken on, and I couldn’t have completed it without the camaraderie and support of my fellow team mates. These funds will allow us to help more care workers across the UK who find themselves in a crisis and need support. We hope everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will join us again next year.’
