UHY tax partner takes on Three Peaks to take fundraising to new heights

4 July 2018

Clive Gawthorpe, tax partner in our Manchester office, successfully completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 30 June to raise money for the UK’s leading hunger fighting charity, FareShare.

Clive, alongside his daughter Cathryn, completed the 24 mile route across three mountains, scaling Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in just under ten hours.  As a result, Clive has raised over £2,000 for FareShare.

FareShare distribute surplus food to charities who turn it into meals. Last year alone they redistributed enough food for 36.7 million meals. Plus, the organisations they supply food to are places that provide life changing support, as well as lunch and dinner.

“I’m incredibly proud” comments Clive. “Widely regarded as one of the UK’s toughest hiking challenges, my daughter and I were delighted to have completed it in under ten hours. That we’ve been able to raise such a significant amount of money for FareShare, thanks to the generosity of our friends and supporters, makes this achievement all the more special.”
