A TEAM of 60 from The Mount Charles Group packed their rucksacks and took to the Mournes in aid of their chosen charity; Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children (NICFC) to raise the staggering sum of £14,000.
The event, which took place on The Mount Charles Group's 24th birthday, Sunday August 12, had the team work up a sweat all in the name of this great cause. The funds raised will help NICFC continue their much-needed work throughout Northern Ireland. The charity not only provides emotional and financial support to families suffering from cancer but also remembers the importance of still having a childhood experience.
NICFC offer children, teenagers and young adults the opportunity to
take part in fun activities such as water sports, cinema trips and
schemes like the Duke of Edinburgh Award as well as offering respite
retreats or families to enjoy in Shimna Valley Village and cottages near
the River Bann.
Trevor Annon, from The Mount Charles Group, said: "We were really thrilled with the turnout.
Everyone completed the challenge in good spirits despite the torrential rain. The amount raised exceeded our expectations and I must thank all our staff and their family and friends who took part and some of our suppliers who supported the event and especially those who also completed the walk. This is a very worthy cause and one which touched the hearts of all."
