Couple tackle Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for Eden Suite at Heartlands Hospital

 

Catrina Wilson and her husband Will completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in just over 12 hours. The challenge saw them cover a gruelling 24.5 miles over three of Yorkshire’s highest peaks.

Despite the appalling weather conditions, Catrina and Will, along with Will’s colleagues from Talent Hive (a recruitment business based in the Jewellery Quarter), made it to the end of the challenge which finished with a well-deserved sit down in a pub.

Will and Catrina lost their baby boy Arthur at 23 weeks just before Christmas last year. The couple decided to do something amazing to raise money for the Eden Suite at Heartlands Hospital, which supported them during the tough time after the loss of their son.

Catrina said: “We wanted to say thank you to the amazing staff on the Eden Suite who supported us. It has been a tough year but we’ve managed to stay positive and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us.
“We’re delighted to have raised nearly £2,000 for the Eden Suite and I’m sure it will go to great use.”

Sian Averill, Fundraising Manager at Heartlands Hospital said: “Heartlands Hospital Charity is incredibly grateful to Catrina, Will and the team from Talent Hive for their fundraising efforts.

“The money that they raised will help the Charity to continue to support the vital work that happens on the Eden Suite to help parents come to terms with their loss.”
