Altura Learning UK joined the Care Workers Charity to complete their annual challenge event. This year’s annual fundraiser saw 90 people from across the care sector take part in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge.
Our route covered twenty-four and a half miles, including 1585 meters of ascent over the Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside hills. The UK team from joined 17 other teams who took on this demanding route through the breath-taking British countryside against the clock, with only 12 hours to conquer steep climbs while battling the elements.
“It was an honour for Altura to support the Care Workers Charity on their 2018 big challenge. Walking with a team of inspiring people with a common goal, to raise awareness and all important funds for this wonderful charity that supports care workers in the UK. This was no walk in the park, and saw us hike through all weathers, as is so often the case for the brilliant care workers providing invaluable services for some of the most vulnerable people in our society, 24/7, 365 days a year. We will be there again in 2019, once the blisters have healed!” – Bruce Adams, Head of Sales Europe at Altura Learning.
This year’s challenge raised an impressive total of £35,698!

“I’m incredibly proud of and thankful to all those who participated in our annual challenge. This was one of the toughest challenges I have ever taken on, and I couldn’t have completed it without the camaraderie and support of my fellow team mates. These funds will allow us to help more care workers across the UK who find themselves in a crisis and need support. We hope everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will join us again next year.” – Alex Ramamurthy, CEO at the Care Workers Charity
