Callcredit trekkers raise more than £10,500 for charity...with more donations rolling in
Employees and clients of Callcredit Information Group took on the colossal Oxfam Trailtrekker challenge, tackling a gruelling 30-hour, 100km trek across the Yorkshire Dales to raise a fantastic £10,500 for Oxfam on June 4th-5th with more donations on the way.
28 took on the 'Trailtrekker' challenge on behalf of Callcredit, walking through gale force winds, rain, darkness and exhaustion to raise as much money as possible. Despite injuries and fatigue all walkers covered a huge distance with eight achieving the amazing feat of reaching the finish line in the 30-hour target time.
The Callcredit trekkers have already raised more than £10,500 for Oxfam, with donations continuing to pour in as colleagues, friends and family hear about the unbelievable challenges and achievements of the event. The money will support Oxfam's work in relieving poverty and suffering in the UK as well as around the world.
Mike Davies, Business Development Director at Callcredit said: "We always expected this event to be a huge challenge, and it didn't let us down! The terrain and weather combined with the darkness overnight and exhaustion really put us to the test, but I am extremely proud of how every one of the walkers did. Raising more than £10,500 for Oxfam really makes the hard work worthwhile and we're expecting that figure to continue to rise."
