Co-operators pushing on for charity

Three co-operators have joined forces to tackle the longest, steepest, highest charity challenge in England.

Jim Pettipher of Co-operative Futures in Gloucester, Dan Harris from Oxford Cycle Workshop and Paul Rowlands of design agency Leadout will take part in the Great Lakeland Challenge in the Lake District on September 11th.

The event will see hundreds of competitors canoe England’s longest lake, cycle the country’s steepest pass and conquer England’s highest peak in 12 hours.

Now the team, which is raising money for childrens’ charity Wooden Spoon, is looking for a fourth member, with organisational skills and a driving licence.

Said Mr Pettipher: “The Co-operative Movement is all about working together, and the Great Lakeland Challenge gives us an excellent opportunity to demonstrate this spirit of co-operation, while raising thousands of pounds for a good cause at the same time.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring the team, or becoming its fourth member, should contact Jim Pettipher from Co-operative Futures on 0845 456 2506 or email: [email protected].
