Accountancy firm Crowe is to be the sponsor of the Children's Centre's Manx 3 Peaks Challenge on Sunday July 4.


2021 will be the second year in succession the charity will have hosted the event, which challenges walkers to set out from sea level in Ramsey to conquer North Barrule, Snaefell and Beinn-yPhott, before finishing on Laxey Promenade.


Crowe CEO Phaedra Bird said: 'As a firm operating for more than 35 years in the Isle of Man, Crowe has developed enduring links with the local community. We've been pleased to be involved with many good causes whose experience, expertise and reputation for innovation bring about real and positive change. 'One such organisation is the Children's Centre. I've been privileged to visit their working Farm and witness first-hand the variety of inspirational projects and unique experiences the charity's head, Joff Whitten, and his team are delivering.

'Crowe is proud to be supporting the Children's Centre's outstanding work with children, young people and families, which is helping them to transform their lives and reach their full potential. We see our sponsorship of the Manx 3 Peaks Challenge as very much the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship, which clearly offers tremendous potential for Crowe staff members to get involved with the Children's Centre's life-changing work.'


The head of the Children's Centre, Joff Whitten, said: 'We are thrilled to be able to run Manx 3 Peaks again this year and delighted to welcome the support of Crowe. We are keeping all our fingers and toes crossed that the island will have the pandemic under control by the time the event is due to happen!


'Manx 3 Peaks last year was a joy to be part of; it was great to see so many people outside taking part in this lovely event. I know some people challenged themselves to complete the walk as quickly as they could and I know some people were challenging themselves to complete the event – all are welcome and it's a great way for us to raise the essential funds we need to do the work we do. In a time of crisis, the services we provide at the Children's Centre become more obvious to more people, sadly because more of us struggle. The pandemic hasn't been kind on anyone and the work we do with families, children and young people at the Children's Centre is in great demand. The more we raise, the more families we can help.


'Good luck to all the walkers and I will see you half way up a peak or two!'
