‘One in a Million’ shares their gratitude with Castle Minibus

Castle Minibus is always pleased to hear about our customers’ charitable efforts and we’re often able to support them. Most recently we have been privileged to support Bradford’s One in a Million, Three Peaks Challenge and we would like to thank our clients and customers who also supported this worthy cause.



About the Three Peaks Challenge

The Three Peaks Challenge is a gruelling and yet very popular challenge that many walkers take part in to raise funds for a wide variety of charities.

The challenge is to walk the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, in 24 hours. That’s a total of 4308 meters, which equates to around 180 metres up a mountain, every hour!

Bradford City got in touch to tell us about their challenge back in the summer. Their problem was a rather nice one though… Following the overwhelming number of people wanting to join them on the Three Peaks Challenge, they were in need of another minibus to transport all the walkers and their equipment, and Castle Rentals was quick to oblige.


Following the challenge we received a really lovely letter from Craig McHugh, Director of One in a Million and we’d like to share it with you now:

“Good Morning

I hope you are well.

On behalf of all at One In A Million, I would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all at Castle Rentals for your valued support of our recent charity National 3 Peaks Challenge.

Our N3P 2016 challenge saw 27 walkers plus support crew from the Bradford business community to complete the three highest peaks in Scotland, England & Wales, to raise vital funds for One In A Million’s work amongst children & young people living in disadvantaged communities of Bradford. Together we raised a fantastic £8,750, thank you for your support!

We were overwhelmed by the response from walkers wanting to take part in this gruelling challenge and we are grateful to Castle Rentals for the provision of a free of charge additional minibus to allow us to accommodate our walkers, plus baggage and supplies!

Thank you and we look forward to speaking to you again soon.

Best Regards
Craig

You can still support One in a Million

One In A Million is a Bradford based charity that engages predominantly with disadvantaged children and young people, through sports, the arts and enterprise. Formal and informal education is delivered to break the cycles of deprivation over their young lives, valuing and celebrating their uniqueness, and letting them know they are ‘one in a million’.

The charity consists of six departments: Alternative Education Provision, Community Programmes, Corporate Events and Sponsorship, OIAM Free School, Positive Lifestyle and Bradford Youth Offending Team.

The next challenge the charity will be taking on is in May 2017 when they will be cycling up dale and down vale in Yorkshire over two days and up to 100 miles each day. If you would like to get involved click here to register or if you’d rather donate than rotate, click here.
