A 20-strong group made up of charitable trekkers of Alert Fire & Security Ltd staff, BFCitC staff, and SHOUT Network employees tackled the 557-metre climb via a detour to the Whitehough Outdoor Education Centre led by Matthew Hargreaves, General Manager of BFCitCom.

"We made it!" said Lindsey Robinson, Account Manager for Alert Fire & Security, with Alert having raised over £500. "[The] weather was dry and everyone enjoyed it; all the children did so well too. It's really good to do it with BFCitC; we're friends of BFCitC and seeing what they do in the local area in their projects is great."
