Scrambled Legs Take on the Peak District
On the 16th of September, Head of Culinary and Hospitality, Simon Lawrence and his team of 6 enthusiastic chefs, aptly named ‘Scrambled Legs’, took on this year’s Peak District Trek to fundraise for the Care Workers Charity.
Dressed in chef whites and hats, kindly donated by partners, Fair Kitchens, Scrambled Legs set off from Hope Valley to begin their 25km footslog through the beautiful scenic route of the Peak District. Joining them along the way was the eager Home Trainer, Aga and Well-being Co-ordinator, Katie, from Darwin Court Care Home in Lichfield.
In good spirits, the teams had lots of fun throughout their trek, including hiding in bushes to capture the perfect photo. Together the two groups have collectively raised an impressive £1,517 for the worthy cause and are still collecting donations via their JustGiving pages.
Reflecting on the challenge as they crossed the finish line in Castleton with very fragile legs and a glass of fizz in hand, Simon said, “It was a very proud day with a great sense of achievement and friendships formed. We have all enjoyed representing Avery as OneFamily and are ready for the next challenge. Perhaps Kilimanjaro next!”
