A TEAM from powered access equipment firm Horizon Platforms will talk 25 miles this weekend in aid of Wakefield Hospice.

The 20-strong team will walk the Three Peaks, a gruelling mountain trek in the Yorkshire Dales.

They have so far raised around £3,000 in sponsorship for the hospice.

Dave Williams, marketing manager at the firm, based at Roundwood Industrial Estate, Ossett, said: “The hospice is a local charity which relies heavily on donations. We thought it would be the best charity to support.”

The walk, which will set off from Horton-in-Ribblesdale tomorrow, was planned for July but cancelled after a severe weather warning.

Mr Williams added: “We were advised not to go ahead with it but things are looking fine for this weekend. People are excited about it and looking forward to the walk.”
