Helping the Heroes

8 October 2009

A Costain team from Manchester is about to scale the heights in order to raise money for the nation's heroes.

The team, based at Styal Road, will embark on a 'lung-bursting' mission to tackle the famous Yorkshire Peaks of Penyghent, Whernside and Inglebrough in just one day.

The eight staff and partners aim to raise funds for the Help for Heroes* charity.

Costain's David Watkins said: "It will not be easy but it will be worthwhile.  We expect cramp and blisters but we also expect to complete the task.  If you would like to contribute to the Help for Heroes charity then please use Ian Hollands' Just Giving site below."


* Help for Heroes is a British charity launched in September 2007 to help provide better facilities for wounded British servicemen and women.
