Pub regulars take on trek in the Dales to raise cash for charity

A GROUP of regulars at a pub took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for a mental health charity.

Customers at the George Inn at Healey had already started fundraising for the Dewsbury-based Take Ten charity and John Kilroy, who lives just down the road from the pub, wanted to do his bit after his family was affected by suicide.

So he decided to get a group of 14 family and friends together to complete the 25-mile trek in memory of his wife Jane's brothers Michael and Mark Ormondroyd, who both took their own life.

It took the walkers between nine and 12 hours to climb Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent in the Yorkshire Dales last month.

A huge £3,650 was donated to Take Ten's founder Stevie Oliver at the pub this week, who said she was "overwhelmed" by the support.
