We're Featured in the MPS Magazine!
We’d like to formally thank all of those that have helped us support the MPS Society and Macmillan so far, this year. Today, we received our copies of the MPS Magazine, summer 2017 issue, and we have a full page dedicated to our efforts for the MPS!
Here’s what the MPS society had to say about us:
This year we are fortunate to be the ‘Charity of the Year’ for Oulsnam Lettings. They have arranged a number of fundraising events throughout the year where MPS will be the beneficiary or shared beneficiary of any monies they raise. Examples of the types of events they have arranged are cake baking, marathon running, wolf walking and even holding sweepstakes for the Grand National and Wimbledon.
One of the more strenuous events that Laura Fiddes-Baron and Stephen Hill of the Oulsnam team recently undertook was the Lake District 24 Peaks Challenge in June. This challenge involved scaling 24 of England’s largest mountains including Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Fairfield to name but a few in 24 hours. The first day started in Buttermere and covered 10 peaks over 20 miles. The second day covered 15 miles and 14 mountains which started near Ambleside.
Branch Manager Laura commented: “Day 1 was a complete mental challenge as well as being crucifying for the knees. There was a very long hike between peaks 3 and 4 which was when the challenge became a bit of a mental game because you still had all the biggest peaks yet to do. The final peak was Bowfell which overlooks the Langdale region and from there we had to walk an exhausting 1.5 hour distance back to the car downhill on weary legs.”
The challenge was far harder than Laura and Stephen anticipated and took a lot of grit and determination to get through. Most people who complete the challenge use a professional guide but Laura and Stephen decided to plan and navigate it all themselves to raise as much money as possible. They are extremely proud to have so far raised £800 to be shared between the MPS Society and Macmillan. Well done Oulsnam what a fantastic achievement!
