The 10 Peaks Challenge is  a tough 34 kilometre course taking in the highest peaks of the Brecon Beacons, including the iconic Pen Y Fan. Companies who participated included Balfour Beatty Homes, Building Relations PR, Crest Nicholson, Dandara, Ecofficiency, EcoWorld, Howdens, Kaboodle, Protech Site Services Taylor Wimpey, UK Connect and Wain Homes.

Supporting vulnerable people

With sponsors UK Connect and Taylor Wimpey supporting the challenge, the funds raised by the participants will go directly to supporting 35 vulnerable young people on their three school year programme which will help them build resilience and develop confidence.

PJ Farr, MD of co – sponsor UK Connect said: - “A huge well done to everyone who took part in the Housebuilder Challenge 2021. Whilst I know this was one of the hardest challenges the UK Connect participants have ever had to face, I know it was equally very rewarding and a huge achievement, of which the whole company is very proud. It was fantastic for UK Connect to take on the challenge with other like-minded individuals from the housebuilding and construction industries, raising an amazing amount of money for the Youth Adventure Trust”.
