Matthew Pitt, commercial and operations director of Abode, has just completed a 90 mile walk along the Dales Way, a long distance footpath, raising over £2,500 for the Alzheimers Society.

The Dales Way is a demanding but rewarding route, taking five and a half days through the Yorkshire countryside. Highlights en-route were seeing the Flying Scotsman train cross the Ribblehead viaduct, looking over the scenic Lake Windermere from the fells and watching the sun set over the Wharfe valley.

“We met some great characters from all over the world. When we reached Ilkley in West Yorkshire, I celebrated with a much-needed pint of Wharfedale bitter. Thanks to everyone who donated money for dementia research,” said Mr Pitt.
