The walk will begin from our Head Office in Cragg Vale (West Yorkshire), taking us through the night around the boundary of Calderdale above Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden before finishing back in Cragg Vale on Saturday evening - undoubtedly, this will be a challenge for each one of us!
The purpose of the walk is to not only challenge the team but also to raise money for two charities which mean a lot to us at Craggs Energy. An initial target of £1,000 has been set which will raise money for Watermark Calderdale and The Christie Charity.
Watermark Calderdale is a not-for-profit campaign which aims to build a flood resilience fund, accessible to households and businesses within Calderdale. The team at Craggs Energy were affected by and witnessed the 2015 Boxing Day floods with the Head Office neighbouring Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge. Watermark Calderdale wishes to raise as much money as possible to help local communities and businesses in the event of another devastating flood.
Our other chosen charity, The Christie, is a leading expert in cancer care, research and education. The charity raises money for a range of projects and initiatives focusing on 4 main areas; research, care and treatment, education and extra patient services. All of these areas are above and beyond what the NHS provide, enabling Christies to not only give their patients the best care and treatment possible but also their patient’s families.
