The recognition follows the recent completion of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge by JF Finnegan Chief Surveyor Paul Ballantyne who, along with 7 friends, raised over £1000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s Treetop House family accommodation centre which Paul himself used following his daughter’s admission to hospital in 2010. The team walked 25 miles over three of Yorkshire’s toughest peaks to raise money for the worthwhile cause which helps around 300 families each year while their children are receiving hospital treatment.
