Afford Bond team in Nantwich

Workers at a Nantwich finance firm are to tackle the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge – in honour of a colleague who battled kidney disease.

Employees at Afford Bond, on Wellington Road, will walk 23 miles on a circular route over three peaks with more than 5,000ft of ascent – in just 12 hours!

The challenge will raise funds for Kidney Research UK, after senior partner John Clarke battled with kidney disease for six years.

John, 50, from Chorley, near Nantwich, was on a transplant waiting list since 2012 and had to undergo dialysis five days a week.

But earlier this year, his brother-in-law Martin donated a kidney and John (pictured, with Martin, below) is now recovering well.

The Afford Bond team has been training with walks over the Sandstone Trail, The Roaches and tackling peaks within Snowdonia National Park.

One of the team Paul Edwards said: “This charity is close to all our hearts as its main purpose is research to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for kidney disease to help people like John live a normal life again.”

The company’s fundraising target has been set at £5,000 but staff hope to exceed this.

“It would mean a lot to us if you could visit our Just Giving page and support our cause, each and every donation will be greatly appreciated and will make every step we take with our tired legs and blisters on the 3rd July worth it.”
