Dickies helps Band of Builders reach new heights

Dickies has supported Band of Builders’ latest fundraising challenge by providing clothing to those completing the National Three Peaks Challenge.

Band of Builders is a national charity run by and for tradespeople, a community that helps members of the construction industry at times of need through hands-on projects, advice and support.

A team of 17 walkers supported by eight drivers took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge, climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – the three tallest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – within 24 hours on June 29 and 30 to raise funds for the charity.

Dickies provided hoodies and T shirts for those taking part, which were branded with the Band of Builders logo.

James Whitaker, marketing director, Dickies Workwear, said: “Word is quickly spreading about the fantastic work Band of Builders does to support tradespeople when times get tough. We’re pleased to support such a worthwhile cause and this was a great opportunity to do so.”

Martin O’Donnell, fundraising co-ordinator at Band of Builders, added: “Everyone taking part in this tough challenge should be proud of what they’ve achieved. The total walking distance for the National Three Peaks is 23 miles, with a total ascent of 3,064 metres – although the descents were just as tough at times!

“We surpassed our initial goal of raising £10,000 and this figure has now reached £13,180 in total.

“We’re grateful to Dickies for providing the branded T shirts and hoodies. Seeing our logo on our tops was a good reminder for everyone climbing those mountains that our efforts were for such an important cause.”
