Donations roll in for TRAD’s Three Peaks charity walk

TRAD’s Three Peaks charity walk

TRAD has already raised more than 50% of its fundraising target of £75K for the year as part of its 50th-anniversary appeal.

TRAD Group (‘TRAD’), one of the UK’s leading scaffolding and access companies, is just a week away from sending 30 of its people on a 26-mile trek across Yorkshire’s three highest peaks, to raise money for the company’s chosen charities for its 50th anniversary year.

The 30 walkers taking on the 3 Peaks challenge are made up of all disciplines across the Group, ranging from Yard Staff to Directors who will be taking part for a common cause.

The company has been collecting donations to support the walkers, and is delighted to have received donations from numerous Scaffolding companies from up and down the country.

In addition, the team has received a single donation of £2,500 from Northern Gas and Power – this brings the total fundraising for this year to around £40,000 – more than halfway to TRAD’s target of £75,000 for the year.

“It’s been absolutely amazing to have this support from the scaffolding and construction industry,” said Des Moore, CEO at TRAD. “These generous donations have been added to the money collected individually by our team of walkers, and by other events put on by TRAD Group staff – it’s an immense effort and I’m really proud to be part of this charity effort.”

The walkers will be trekking the three peaks on Saturday October 9th, and all donations are still welcome. “We’d really love to get to our target before the end of the year,” said Des Moore, who will be walking the route along with other members of staff.

“So we’d encourage anyone who wants to support the Royal British Legion, MIND and the MS Society to contribute to our fundraising if they can. With still over 1 week until we take on the challenge I’m hopeful we will receive plenty more significant contributions to help boost our donation pot!

We are already over halfway of reaching our £30k target for this challenge and welcome donations from all to help us achieve our £30k goal for the three very worthy charities we are supporting this year”.
