The Dempsey Dyer Two conquer the 42 Peaks Challenge

Dempsey Dyer’s commercial sales manager, Martyn Wright, led a team of four on the trek, including colleague Anthony Ryder, in memory of his dad Ron Wright, who died of a brain tumour in 2005 aged just 58. The team scaled some of the Lake District’s most rugged terrain and climbed a total of 28,000ft – which is equivalent to Mount Everest.

“The challenge was very physically demanding – we managed to cover over 66 miles in just three days – but we enjoyed every minute and we’re delighted to raise funds for a very worthy cause,” said Martyn.

“I took on the challenge in memory of my dad, who I lost through the disease. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under the age of 40, yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to curing this devastating condition.”
Peter Dyer, Dempsey Dyer MD commented: “I’m incredibly proud of Martyn, Ant and the rest of the team for taking on such a gruelling challenge, and raising money for a fantastic cause. I’d encourage everyone to visit Martyn’s Just Giving page and make a donation. I know how much he’ll appreciate any amount, large or small.”

Dempsey Dyer was founded in 1977 by brothers Tom and Robert Dyer. In the decades since, the Yorkshire-based fabricator has grown to become one of the region’s foremost providers of timber and Deceuninck uPVC. In recent years, the company has combined the two specialisms to produce the Beaumont window range, mechanically-jointed uPVC frames with an authentic woodgrain appearance.
