Simon’s Coast to Coast trek raises over £3,000 for charity

A mortgage product manager at the Society has successfully tackled the 192 mile Coast to Coast walk, over 13 days, from St Bees on England’s west coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the east coast.

Simon Halladay raised £3,145 for the Lymphoma Association – including £400 in matched funding from Leeds Building Society.

Simon said: “It's over 10 years since I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and this summer was the 10th anniversary of finishing my treatment. To celebrate this I tackled the Coast to Coast - a 192 mile walk over 13 days from St Bees on the west coast to Robin Hood’s Bay on the east coast.

“I am delighted to have significantly beaten my original £1,000 fundraising target, and would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me and Leeds Building Society for providing matched funding.”
