IT solution company Origin raise money for community pantry at The Butterfield Centre through Three Peaks Challenge





Employees at a town business completed a 24-mile trek to raise money for a community pantry.

The team at Origin, an IT solution company with an office in Bourne, first got involved with The Butterfield Centre after discovering the number of people using foodbanks is on the rise.

They have been giving up time on Friday afternoons to transport stock from food manufacturer Bakkavor to The Butterfield Centre in North Road.

Keen to do more, the team decided to take on the Three Peaks Challenge, which involves climbing the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales.

They completed the challenge in 10 and a half hours and raised £1,738.

The money raised will go towards a new appliance for the Butterfield Centre Community Pantry, which is open six times a week and has seen a growth in the number of visitors.
