Trainee Challenge 2023 will tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks
Sintons’ trainee group will embark on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for the Trainee Challenge 2023, it has been announced.
The annual Trainee Challenge is a key part of Sintons’ annual fundraising effort, and sees the firm’s graduate trainees and solicitor apprentices undertake an ambitious physical challenge to raise vital funds for the firm’s nominated charity.
For 2023, the 11-strong trainee group will take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, which involves climbing the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres), in under 12 hours.
After training together in the coming months, the group will take on the challenge in early summer, with the aim of raising hundreds of pounds for The People’s Kitchen, Sintons’ current staff charity.
Previous Trainee Challenges have included last year’s Paddle the Bann – a two-day 58km canoeing expedition from Lough Neagh in Ireland to Coleraine on the coast of the Atlantic; the 136-mile Coast to Coast cycle trek from Whitehaven to Tynemouth; and the Three Peaks Challenge of scaling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon – a combined height of 3,408 metres.
Christopher Welch, managing partner of Sintons, says: “Our annual Trainee Challenge is a renowned event within the firm, with our trainee group going to ever greater lengths to challenge themselves while raising vital funds for local charities.
“At Sintons, we are always very keen to promote the importance of exercise in both physical and mental wellbeing, and our trainees challenging themselves in this way is hugely positive. The Trainee Challenge also strengthens the great relationship our young lawyers enjoy in the workplace, which only increases their ability to do an outstanding job for our clients.
“Everyone at Sintons is always only too keen to wish the trainees well on their challenge, keenly following their progress through their training in the run-up to the main event itself, and we all wish them the very best of luck. The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is known as a very physically demanding challenge, and we are very grateful our trainee group are taking this on to help increase our support for The People’s Kitchen.”
