The team at North Associates, along with family and friends, is challenging itself to undertake the Ullswater Ultra in memory of their much-loved friend and colleague, Helen Threlfell, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Helen who grew up at Plumpton Head Farm, near Penrith, had worked with the team at North Associates since its formation in 2012. She worked hard throughout this time helping build the business to where it is now. In life as well as in work Helen was fondly liked and formed close friendships with colleagues and clients. Her subtle, dry sense of humour brought many a laugh to those in the office. She was a dedicated, kind and generous colleague who will be truly missed.
On the 12th of August 2016, a team made up of colleagues, family and friends will summit Helvellyn via Striding Edge (the third highest peak in England) before descending and canoeing the length of Ullswater (at 11km, the second longest lake in the UK) to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance Service, our regions essential healthcare service, which relies upon charitable donations.
The team has set up a donation page which can be accessed now through the Just Giving website. All donations go direct to the charity so please donate generously to an excellent cause and in memory of a much missed friend and colleague who was taken tragically early.
North Associates is part of the WYG group of companies.
