Daring employees of CCF raised a whopping £32,615 for an Alzheimer’s charity by climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

The gruelling challenge involved climbing Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough peaks in just 12 hours.

The insulation and building products distributor also held golf events and football sweepstakes across its 41-strong branch network to add to the fundraising total.

It was the biggest donation CCF has ever made to the Alzheimers Society, which provides care and undertakes research to support people with dementia and their carers.

CCF Managing Director Dean Pinner said: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of our teams across the country who are not only delivering excellent work for the business but also finding the time to fundraise.

“All of the money raised by CCF helps to make a real difference to those affected by dementia and their families, and this motivates us as a business to keep on going.”

Chris Stokes, Senior Regional Corporate Partnerships Executive at the Alzheimer's Society, added: “What CCF has achieved in such a short period of time is a testament to everyone working at the business.

“They have been innovative with their ideas, and people affected by dementia have always remained at the heart of everything they do.

“The money raised thus far, and continue to raise, will help so many people across the UK affected by dementia.”
