CLS Money takes on 3 Peaks Challenge for Havens Hospices

CSR / News Release

Due to growing unsettling weather, it has unfortunately become too dangerous for our Client Relationship Executive, Harley Kimber, to complete his Three Peaks Challenge tomorrow for Havens Hospices.

Harley hopes to be able to reschedule the trek for next April, and we will be sure to let you know as soon as this has been confirmed.

He will also be putting the extra time to good use by completing a 26 mile long coastal trek from Weymouth to Worth Matravers tomorrow, and is currently planning a number of other hikes to ensure he is ready for the big challenge when it arrives!

Thank you very much to everyone who has already donated. Your support is very much appreciated and we will be sure to keep you informed of Harley’s progress.

On Saturday 30th September 2017, CLS Money’s Client Relationship Executive, Harley Kimber, will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge to help raise funds for Havens Hospices, an Essex based charity which cares for adults and children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

The gruelling climb involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours, so is certainly not for the faint hearted! Walking boots have been purchased and are gradually being broken in, in preparation for this momentous challenge.

Please help support Harley’s efforts by donating to this worthy cause: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/harley-kimber

It’s simple, fast and completely secure, and all donations go straight to the charity. If you are a UK taxpayer and choose to add Gift Aid, an additional 28% can also be reclaimed by the charity on every eligible donation, so please dig deep and donate now!
