Recruitment agency business manager to ski 300kms in three days for Highland Hospice

Inverness resident and business manager for Alness-based recruitment agency, Be Personnel, Elaine Pope, is to participate in “The Carvers Highland Hospice Challenge 2016” by skiing ‘Les Trois Valles in the Tarentaise Valley in France along with three friends.

 

The aim of the challenge is to raise much needed funds for the Highland Hospice ‘Project Build Appeal’, which will help rebuild hospice care in the Scottish Highlands.

 

The challenge is to ski 300km over three days and will involve Pope and her friends skiing 100km per day across eight resorts in the world’s largest ski area.

 

The area consists of three valleys Saint Bon, Allues and Bellerville but has recently been extended with a fourth valley – The Maurienne Valley. The three original valleys extend over some 600km of renowned ski slopes and are all connected by a series of lifts making it possible to ski the interlinked valleys using a single ski pass.

 

Commencing her challenge on 22nd February, Pope and her fellow skiers, Jason Dix a site lifting co-ordinator, Garey Kerr a construction supervisor and David Christie a crane operator will have to ski ten hours per day in order to complete the 100km per day target.

 

Pope stated, “This is a tough challenge, especially on the legs and lower body, as the slopes, although well maintained, are quite bumpy so jarring of the knees and thighs will be noticeable. Covering 100km is a lot, as on a normal day one can cover 50km, but I am sure it will be worth it and I know with my close friends it will also be a fun experience.

 

“I have been training in the Cairngorms together with a few other exercise programs so I will not be tackling this unprepared. We are hoping to reach our fund raising target of £10,000 towards the Hospice Build Appeal in Inverness so thank you to all those who have pledged and donated monies so far.”

 

The target of £10,000 will help the current In-Patient Unit in Inverness to build extra single rooms to accommodate patients and families needing bereavement support. It is also hoped that funds can help to finance the development of Virtual Hospice Services allowing greater access to hospice care throughout the Highlands.
