On Saturday 24th June, the XII Alliance, made up of Highway Traffic Management, Consilium Technical Services and Up To Speed Training will be taking part in St Basils Hike for Homeless in the High Peak District.

Following the successful Treecycling event in January, the XII Alliance have set their sights on another charity event, as they will be taking part in the St Basil’s Hike for the Homeless at the end of June.

St Basils is a charity based in Birmingham that works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to enable them to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness.

HTM have previously supported the charity with their Big Sleepout and are looking forward to supporting the charity once again as part of the XII Alliance.

As people of various capabilities are taking part to support the cause, there are three stages of the hike that can be completed, all which start and finish from Castleton, Derbyshire. Those heading for the hills include Greg Baldwin, Marcus Casey, Matt Adkins, Matt Higgs and Mikee Booth representing HTM, Andrew Gardner and Michael Lysaght strapping up their boots on behalf of Consilium Technical Services, and Adam Mills, Simon Booth and Paul Lewis who will be climbing on behalf of Up To Speed Training and Assessment Limited.

Of the team of ten, three will be completing the short (Moderate) 5 mile walk which will see stunning views of WInnats Pass and Mam Tor, 1 big hill that should take roughly 3 hours.

The remaining seven will be continuing on to the next (Tough) walk, which will cover a total of 14 miles, who will also get to see the Vale of Edale and Rushup Edge, 2 big hills that should take 6 hours.

The Alliance have set a target of £500 to raise for the charity, but are hoping to beat this by getting support from within the industry leading up to the event.

“It’s great to come together and collaborate again for another fantastic cause.” said Greg Baldwin, HTM.

“St Basil’s do so much work within the local community and as a business we have worked with the charity for some time.”

Andrew Gardner from Consilium Technical Services commented: “Consilium Technical Services was delighted to be involved in the Treecycling event in January. we’re already looking forward to taking part in the event in June and play our part in supporting this fantastic charity. Fingers crossed we can beat our donation target.”

Adrian Pullham from UTS added: “We’re proud to be raising money for such a brilliant charity and the team look forward to walking with the rest of the fundraisers taking part in the event.”
