Three teams of fabulous fundraisers took part in the Three Peaks Challenge over three weekends in July and August, raising a staggering £18k between them. Each team undertook the challenge in 24 hours, scaling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon.
The teams were made up of local friends and family from Newbury, Hungerford, and surrounding areas, each with their own reason for supporting the charity. ‘Their training regime has been rigorous’ said CEO Trevor Goodall. ‘Each team had a great amount of work to do to get them ready for such a tough challenge.’
The Three Peaks Challenge is one of the most popular challenges in the UK where participants have to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England, and Wales. It has also proved one of the most popular challenges over the past few years for teams wanting to fundraise for their chosen charity.
The £18k raised will provide specialist life-saving equipment to hospitals across the South.
We welcome enquiries from new as well as existing supporters who would like to take part in the Three Peaks or indeed, organise their own personal challenge.
