Three chartered accountants from Burnley took on three gruelling challenges over three weekends to raise £5,087 for Pendleside Hospice.

Richard Robinson, Ben Thurston and Scott Reid, who work at Macmahon Leggate Chartered Accountants, tackled the North Yorkshire Three Peaks ran the Pennine 10K and finished with an epic, whirlwind tour of the UK by climbing the National Three Peaks over two days. The group originally set themselves a fund-raising target of £2,500.

Richard said: “We wanted to raise money for a local charity and one which has supported our own families.”
