Team MHP contribute to best ever Hope Challenge

MHP’s ‘Hope Challenge’ team helped to make a recent weekend’s annual fundraising event the ‘best Hope Challenge weekend to date’ according to organisers, the housing charity Habitat for Humanity.

Team MHP,  comprised of (as pictured from left to right) Colin McLennon, Patrick Walsh, Bernie Conroy and James Chatt-Collins, took on the hottest weekend of the year to meet the challenge of hiking across 20 kilometres of the Peak District’s Hope Valley. 

The hike, which included a 1000 metre ascent, a series of stage tasks including aqueduct building, design and build of an overnight shelter to sleep in and a trivia quiz, helped to raise enough money for Habitat for Humanity to build 85 houses in the developing world.

Habitat for Humanity is an international regeneration charity which champions decent housing as a fundamental human right and provides the funding, training and support to build homes and capacity in the communities that need them most; from the poorest communities in London, Liverpool and Northern Ireland, to vulnerable communities affected by natural disasters, war, poverty and disease across the globe.

Team MHP, achieved a respectable 14th place from the 35 teams who took part in the challenge, raising almost £4000 (enough to build two houses) in the process and contributing to an overall event total of £105,000 raised.

Bernie Conroy, MHO Managing Director, said “The event lived up to its name, it was challenging, but was great fun and will make a real difference to the lives of the people helped by Habitat for Humanity. The team would like to thank all our sponsors for their support.”
