Simon treks 40 miles in 12 hours for charity

A mortgage product manager at the Society has raised £1,600 for charity by trekking 40 miles across the North York Moors.

Simon Halladay completed the Lyke Wake Walk between Osmotherley and Ravenscar in a time of 12 hours and 45 minutes.

He picked this 40 mile challenge because he recently celebrated his 40th birthday.  

Simon has raised £1,600 for the Lymphoma Association – including £400 in matched funding from Leeds Building Society. 

He chose this charity after previously being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma - this August marks the 12th anniversary of finishing his treatment.
