Parents attempting 24hour 3 Peaks Challenge

Parents Ben and Rebecca Allen (Allen Tomas & Co employees) are part of a group of intrepid West Norfolk parents that are training hard for the 3 Peaks Challenge to raise vital funds for their local school (Ingoldisthorpe Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School). They will summit the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in 24 hours from dusk on 31st August, walking over 37kms, climbing a total of over 10,000ft and driving 1830kms.

The completion of the challenge will help secure two exciting new developments for Ingoldisthorpe Primary: an outdoor log cabin classroom which will provide much needed space at their children's school and a stage piano to strengthen the school's music provision. A log cabin to match the existing classrooms will cost around £8,000 to buy and site on the school field. It will offer the school space for Music Lessons which are an important part of the curriculum, along with room for art, reading and intervention sessions for small groups of children.

The group of 9 parents initially formed in September last year via the #schoolrunrun campaign to try and get parents active together. One of the regular runners Lexy Ridgway suggested the challenge as a great way to raise money for the school and so the parents will make their 24 hour attempt of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon with the School Secretary driving and feeding the team.

Headteacher, Sean Wright, said: "Funding-raising is such an important part of education in today's ever-changing landscape. It's wonderful to see so many parents, staff and children committing their time, energy and skills to benefit our school community."

Taking the challenge is not only promoting a healthy lifestyle, a sensible approach to exercise but also raising money for a local cause. The group's gofund me page is: https://www.gofundme.com/going-for-ingoldisthorpe  and any businesses that would like to sponsor the team are encouraged to get in contact with Ben Allen so they can have their logo displayed at the top of each peak on a banner.

Charity Golf Day

The 3rd Allen Tomas & Co Financial Management Ltd Charity Golf day was held on Friday 14th September at Heacham Manor.

Organisers and Directors Ben Allen and Michael Crisp said "We had a fantastic day, the weather held and all that entered enjoyed the Golf and the well deserved hog roast afterwards. We are delighted to announce we raised £2,100. This will be split equally between the Norfolk Hospice and the Stroke Unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (West Raynham Patient and Equipment Fund). We chose the charities based on experience of personal family treatment from the QE staff and our recent visit to the Norfolk Hospice’s purpose built facility at Hillington, which has cemented our admiration of what has been achieved here during the 5 years of our ongoing charitable support".

The format for the golf event was team friendly Texas Scramble, which all the guests enjoyed thoroughly. First place went to Ward Gethin Archer Solicitors led by Chris Dewey, second place to Home I…
