Cratus Group join the 2024 Public Sector Challenge

We are delighted to be supporting this year’s Public Sector Challenge as Marketing and Public Relations Partners.

Chief executive of Brentwood BC and Rochford DC, Jonathan Stephenson, devised the plan to create the Public Sector Challenge after leading his own teams on a similar – if somewhat smaller – challenge in 2022.

In 2022, 30 employees from the council raised more than £12,000 for local charities when they took on the Three Peaks Yorkshire challenge – a 26 mile walk and climb over 12 hours. In June 2023, Public Sector Teams, working with Private sector partners, undertook the National 3 Peaks Challenge as part of the first ever national Public Sector Challenge.

The challenge was such a success that the challenge is growing this year to get more people involved, in whatever way they can, to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.

This year, teams will rally together to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Friday 6th September, 2024. The challenge is a 24-mile (38.6km) round trip route, and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. It takes on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres), usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These hills form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This year, the challenge brings together local government, the wider public sector and private sector partners to raise over £60,000 for Cancer Research UK (CRUK).

Cratus Group CEO, Nick Kilby: ” We support The Public Sector Challenge as it comes from the heart and is refreshingly genuine. All of us one day could benefit from the generosity of those who do the challenge and those that sponsor them. What’s not to like and admire?”
