The Atlas Ascent
On 27 September 2018 a 15 strong team of Helical employees embarked on a four day Charity Trek to the Atlas Mountains, reaching the top of northern Africa’s tallest peak – Jbel Toubkal at 4,167m. This incredibly rewarding challenge stretched the team both physically and mentally, raising over £140,000 for two notable charities, LandAid and The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, with 100% of funds raised split equally between the two charities.
LandAid is the property industry charity working to end youth homelessness in the UK. LandAid brings together businesses and individuals from across the industry to support charities delivering life changing projects for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness.
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal partners (each year) with three organisations who are leading experts in addressing social issues to deliver ground breaking programmes, which will not only change, but also save, people’s lives. This year’s appeal supports Place2Be, OnSide Youth Zones and Samaritans.
