On Saturday 19th September, a team from Sykes & Son Limited completed a 50km hiking challenge in the Brecon Beacons. The 50km (31 mile) route included the highest peak in South Wales; Pen Y Fan, which sits at 886 metres above sea level.
The challenge was organised to raise emergency funds for our Charity Partner, Coram’s Fields – a historic park and playground in the London Borough of Camden, that provides holistic services and support to poverty-stricken young people and families.
This gruelling hike took just over 13 hours to complete. Congratulations to the team for completing this enormous challenge.
The closure of Coram’s Fields earlier this year due to COVID-19, left the charity with an uncertain future. They need emergency funding so that they can be resilient through this crisis, and ensure that their park, playground and vital facilities are available for local families, for generations to come.
Our Sykes team have managed to raise over £6,700 for Coram’s Fields which will provide vital support for local children, young people, and families at this time.
