On Friday 30th September, the Eldon team completed their ’20 Miles for 20 Years’ challenge, with a 20-mile hike around Ullswater Way.

The purpose was to celebrate 20 years of the firm’s existence, with the funds raised being directed into our Charitable Fund with the County Durham Community Foundation (the Foundation). Funds will then be applied to the Foundation’s Poverty Hurts Appeal – a cause close to our hearts and homes. More information about the Appeal is available here.

Against near-extreme weather, the team completed the challenge within 9 hours – a great feat for a route that can typically take up to 12 hours!

We are just shy of our target of £2,500, excluding any Gift Aid claimed on donations. Eldon will be matching the donations received, up to our overall target, and the Foundation will also match 50% of the funds that are directed to the Appeal. This is an effective tripling of donations.

We would like to thank all who have supported us with such a great cause, that is as important as ever in the current climate. Here’s to more charitable events to come!

Thank you!
