Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

This year Greybridge are completing the Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge, taking on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, all in under 12 hours. The route is 24-miles long, and includes 5,200ft (1,585m) of ascent.

As a team we are raising money for 'Dorothy House Hospice Care' the hospice cared for our colleague Melissa Royce's mother Annette Royce when she needed them the most. 

Annette went for a routine check up in May 2017 which resulted in heartbreaking news. Having suffered and recovered from bowel cancer 2 years previously it had returned with aggression in her liver. Annette was given 2 months life expectancy with 3/4 months if she had chemo. She decided against chemo choosing to live as normal life as possible and to enjoy her grandchildren. Annette died on the 9th of August 3 months after her diagnosis.

Dorothy House provided incredible care and support for all the family throughout, the team are amazing, inspiring and they listened to every wish to make the final days at home as comfortable as possible.

Dorothy House are doing vital work for the community in
caring for people at the end of life and supporting families through the sad and hard times, we want to give something back and recognise the incredible work they do.

We have our walking boots at the ready, and have been training hard in preparation for the 3 peak challenge! Working together as a team, pushing ourselves to our limits!!!

Wish us luck!
