Award-Winning Thames Valley-Based Housebuilder Takes On Mountain Marathon
05 Oct 2018

A 40 strong team from top-10 housebuilder, Linden Homes and Galliford Try Partnerships has completed the mammoth Housebuilders Mountain Marathon Challenge. The team covered a gruelling 26 miles across the rugged terrain of Snowdonia in North Wales, raising over £30,000.

Janine Kingett, construction administrator from Linden Homes Thames Valley based in Abingdon, took part along with other housebuilders in the industry. The money raised by Linden Homes will go to the Youth Adventure Trust. The Trust helps vulnerable children, aged 11 to 14 years old whilst giving them the chance to take part in a number of residential adventure camps. The programme enables the participants to experience success and learn to go beyond their own expectations whilst growing in confidence.

Janine said: “Raising such a large amount of money for such a worthwhile cause has really made two days trekking across Snowdonia in the blustering wind and rain worth it! The challenge was no mean feat so reaching the top was a great feeling of achievement.”

Trevor Wicks, Managing Director of Linden Homes Thames Valley, commented: “It’s important to give back to both local and nationwide initiatives so it was great to have Janine take part in the challenge. The whole team have managed to raise a lot of money for a fantastic charity so we’re extremely proud of those who have shown great determination in completing such a mammoth challenge.”
