Keen walkers and local hospice at home supporters who are already dusting off their boots and backpacks in readiness for our annual Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge including our very own Family Support team.
The seven work colleagues have signed up for the popular 7, 11 or 20-mile event, which returns for its 10th year on Sunday 9 September, saying that it will be an opportunity to spend some ‘off-duty’ time together while raising funds for a cause that is close to their hearts.
The annual early-autumn ramble leads walkers of all ages and abilities through the rolling Chilterns countryside, taking in the landmark high spots of Whiteleaf Cross, Coombe Hill and Ivinghoe Beacon.
Some of the Rennie Grove Family Support team have ‘walked the chalk’ before, but this will be the first time that the magnificent seven of Lisa Makey, Jenny Skinner, Michelle Gedling, Emma Delaney, Debbie Playford, Karen Neill and Andrea Lambert have taken part together.
“One of the reasons we are doing it is because we were looking to do something outside work where we could all get to socialise with each other,” said Family Services Lead Lisa Makey, who explained that all the work colleagues live many miles from each other.
“This is a good opportunity for us to do something for Rennie Grove, and as a team and introduce our partners and families to each other – and to do the Chilterns 3 Peaks Challenge, which I have heard so much about,” said Lisa, who joined Rennie Grove earlier this year.
“We are already very cohesive as a team, and I am sure that this will make us even closer,” she said, adding: “Rennie Grove is one of the friendliest places I have worked, and the money raised is going to the right places – straight to patient care.”
