Story

Thank you so much for visiting our JustGiving page!

Some of us from Harts Plumbing & Heating are doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 14th April 2018 – this is a 12 hour/25mile hike around the Yorkshire Dales’ Pennine peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

We have organised this event to raise awareness for two organisations that are particularly relevant to the Harts Work family – Nystagmus Network UK and St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice (Grimsby) - Our aim is to raise £3,500 for these fantastic charities, and we hope with your generous donations this will be possible.

We have a band of participants who at best might be classed as a group with ‘mixed fitness levels’ so the challenge aspect of this is certainly not to be taken for granted! Nonetheless, the entire team is very much looking forward to uniting on this front and succeeding both in the event and with our fundraising ambitions.

Nystagmus is a vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements. These movements often result in reduced vision and depth perception and can affect balance and coordination. These involuntary eye movements can occur from side to side, up and down, or in a circular pattern. The Nystagmus Network is a UK based charity which supports people affected by the condition and leads the research into finding a treatment.

Many of you will know our longest serving engineer ‘Gelly’ – his eldest daughter, 3 year old Thea, was diagnosed with this condition as a baby. All the staff here have a great deal of admiration at how Thea, Gelly and fiancée Becky have taken this in their stride, and the work and support of the doctors have proved a great assurance to the family. We would like to raise awareness of this (unfamiliar to many) condition, and we feel this is the appropriate opportunity to do so.

Further information on the condition and support that the charity offers can be found below:

Simon – our stores and materials coordinator and brother of Fran - and his partner Amy recently welcomed the newest addition to their family, Hektor. However, Hektor’s arrival into the world was 5 weeks early and as such he was up against things from day one. Things were initially touch and go, and at one point due to a medical emergency the worst was feared, however thanks to the heroic efforts by the staff at St James's University Hospital in Leeds, the tremendous aftercare provided by St Andrew’s and Hektor’s incredible fighting spirit he is now over the worst and back home on the road to recovery with Simon, Amy, Erik & Oskar.

Further information on St Andrew’s can be found below:

Further updates will appear over the next few days & weeks – along with details of other events that we will be organising over the Spring and Summer Months!
