After circulating a request for people to get involved, Procurement Business Partner Rob Durrans and the Production Support Team spearheaded by Linda Mortimer kindly volunteered. Together a team of seven (Kate Hardi, Neil Lavender, Claire Reed, Avril Batten (all pictured L-R with Rob Durrans) and Sarah Gibson (not pictured) walked the 6 mile route through Huddersfield on the 25th June, raising valuable funds for the Hospice.
