Darren Stokes, our Senior National Account Manager here at Exchequer, will be completing the National 3 Peak Challenge in just 24 hours on 28th July, in support of Alder Hey Hospital and Healing Little Hearts charity, alongside 24 of his close friends and family.
Darren is taking part in the challenge and raising funds for these two remarkable organisations as a thank you for the amazing work they carried out to help his nephew, Freddie.
After seven years of trying, Darren’s sister and brother-in-law, Dan and Kirsty, had a little boy named Freddie in August of last year. The couple found out at their 20 week scan that Freddie would be born with a heart condition, known as TGA (transportation of the great arteries). Freddie spent his first three months in Alder Hey Hospital and had open heart surgery at just 10 days old.
Freddie is now fully recovered thanks to the amazing work of the team at Alder Hey Hospital, with special thanks to the Cardiac Surgical Team, ICU, 1C nurses and Freddie’s surgeon, Ram.
This extraordinary team helped to save Freddie’s life, and therefore funds raised from the Challenge will be split between Alder Hey Hospital, and the Healing Hearts Charity, which helps babies and children like Freddie across the globe, to receive the treatment they need.
The Three Peaks Challenge sees participants climbing the three highest peaks within England, Scotland and Wales, walking a total of 23 miles whilst ascending 3,064 metres (10,052ft). The peaks that participants will tackle are Snowdon in Wales, Scafell Pike in England, and Ben Nevis in Scotland.
With a goal of £5,000 the team at Exchequer Solutions couldn’t be prouder to support Darren and his family in raising funds for these fantastic causes and cheer them on as they tackle this amazing feat.
