This year, a team of 9 are excited to take on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge on behalf of the Kreston Reeves Foundation.  

On Saturday 13 April 2024, they will be attempting the circular route of 24 miles taking on the 3 peaks in the Yorkshire Dale of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres). They’re expecting it to take around 12 hours, starting at 5:30am to ensure that they have enough daylight. 

The team, from across the firm, that will be tackling this challenge is: 

Caitlin Powell, Restructuring Manager 

Christopher Gregory, IT trainer 

Colin Laidlaw, VAT Director 

Jeff Rolle, Private Client Tax Senior Manager 

Lucy Hammond, Partner 

Mike Dyer, Partner 

Naomi Varty, HR and Payroll adviser 

Sarah Ediss, Partner 

Tom Wacher, Partner 

Every year each of our offices choose a local Charity to support that will benefit from the fundraising. We will therefore be fundraising for the following charities, and using their causes as motivation to get the team across the finishing line: 

Kent MS Therapy Centre – Canterbury office charity 

Aims to radically improve the lives of those with Multiple Sclerosis, their families and those who care for them, by providing a range of therapies and support services. 

Carers’ Support East Kent – Discovery Park office charity 

A charity that provides Carers with the information and support they need. Their services are available to people looking after a relative or friend, who due to physical or mental illness, age related difficulties, disability or an addiction, cannot manage without their support. 

Air Ambulance Kent, Surrey and Sussex – Chatham office charity 

Provides world-class, fast response, emergency medical care every hour of every day. They envision a society where no one dies following sudden, preventable unexpected trauma or medical emergency. 

The Felix Project – London office charity 

Collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold, delivering it to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society. They believe in a vision where no-one goes hungry and good food is never wasted. 

Jigsaw South East – Horsham office charity 

Offers grief support to children and young people who have experienced the death of a significant family member through illness, accident, suicide or murder. 

Cancerwise – Chichester office charity
