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.”
