The money was donated to NewstrAid.
Neil Jagger, CEO for NewstrAid, said: “We were absolutely blown away by the fundraising efforts of the Marketforce Team. Not only did they get an impressive number of colleagues to participate in the challenge, but they raised more than a third of the fundraising total for this event. A truly inspiring achievement.”
The NewstrAid Excellence Awards were launched earlier this year to recognise people from the newspaper and magazine industry who have provided exceptional support to newstrade colleagues.
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge took place in September.
Jagger added: “Marketforce’s achievement is exactly what we created our Excellence Award for, and everyone involved in their Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge team should be very proud of what they achieved. Their efforts will ensure that we can continue to support hundreds of people who are struggling both financially and emotionally over the coming months.”
