Heroes help heroes

[ March 13, 2012   //   ]

No, there hasn’t been a mass outbreak of freemasonry in Yorkshire. Potter Group Logistics chairman Derrick Potter and directors Matthew Lamb, Stuart Taylor, Jim Thomson and Ken Watson have set their sights on completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday, 31 March, to raise money for Help for Heroes.
The challenge covers 24 miles including three peaks of the Pennine range – Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingelborough; a total climb of around 7,000 ft. Participants should complete the test in less than 12 hours which, considering their combined age is 270 years, could be quite a test for the Potter team.

Leading the walking team is managing director, Matthew Lamb, who comments, “As a Yorkshire based company, we decided what better way to raise money this year than by walking the stunning Three Peaks that we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep. It’s going to be a testing day but we’re looking forward to the challenge, and hopefully some fine weather!”

Ripon, home to Potter Group Logistics has its head office, has a long connection with the Army and is at present home to 21 Regiment of the Royal Engineers, while 9 Regiment Army Air Corps is based close by at Dishforth. Yorkshire also now has the largest British Army garrison at Catterick.
