A 13 strong team raised £1,500
Last weekend (11th-12th August 2018) The group’s efforts raised over £1,500 with the money still coming in, exceeding the £1000 that we had hoped to raise. The money is going to 3 separate charities the Marie Curie Foundation, Ollerton Memory Café & Mayflower Sanctuary in Bawtry.
The team which was made up by champions coming from ARK Alarm Response and Keyholding, VRC Monitoring Solutions, Cannon Fire Protection, APG & special guest Ben Solomon from Octavian IT Support who very nobly joined our cause. The team scaled Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough which was completed on Saturday after camping on Friday night to complete the Three Peaks Challenge which totals 2151 meters of climbing and over 24 miles of walking on rough terrain.
APG Managing Director, Ashley Haigh who was among the climbers, said:
“I think that this challenge was bigger than any of us had anticipated. I’m proud of all members of the team who took part and thank everyone for their donations which will go to worthy causes.”

As a collective group, we look to offer protection to your assets to assist you with your ongoing success within your own business. The group currently consists of the companies stated below but do not be surprised to see these names change due to ongoing acquisitions and mergers as we look to expand the group to continue to meet our customers evolving needs.
Marie Curie is a registered charitable organisation in the United Kingdom which provides care and support to people with terminal illnesses and their families.
Ollerton Memory Café, The group offers a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for people affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s, and other dementias in Ollerton and surrounding areas. The group provides a great service and receives no funding, so we would love to show them support. Meetings are held at the Lifespring Centre on Sherwood Drive Ollerton and it is held every 1st Monday of each month from 1 pm to 3 pm.
Mayflower Sanctuary rescues abused and abandoned dogs and cats providing care and sanctuary until permanent responsible homes can be found. Last year Mayflower re-homed over 350 dogs and 120 cats. Our rescue centre relies heavily on volunteers and public support without which we would not be able to continue.
