THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year we have decided to not only tackle the Three Peaks of the UK but also complete the challenge within 24 hours. So I thought it a great opportunity to raise some cash for a worthwhile cause so yes I am going to give you a bit of a spiel.....!
 
The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the UK's three highest mountains (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) within 24 hours (including some frantic minibus travelling between the peaks) We will be racing against the clock, attempting to rest in the back of a minibus between peaks and braving whatever challenges and conditions the mountains throw at us. Scafell Pike has the highest rainfall in England, it’s so wet its residents have webbed hands – and no they aren’t circus folk.  The distance trekked is around 26 miles, the height climbed is a jaw dropping 10,000 feet, and the distance to be covered between the mountains is some 450 miles - via minibus.  There are 11 of us in total - so just keeping the 11 of us together is going to be a challenge in itself.
 
Given that a few members of the team are friends with James Gribble, we have decided to use this challenge as a way of showing our support for James, as we know that this sort of adventure is something that James would certainly get involved in if given the opportunity. Furthermore, we hope to  raise some money for James to aid his ongoing rehabilitation.

We understand that there have been a lot of fundraisers recently for many great causes. If you can make a donation, which we hope you feel you are able, please visit the 'Donate Now' function on the website www.puffinmagic.org.au and choose the 3 Peaks Challenge under 'contribution type'.  Please fill out the form carefully.  All payment options will be displayed after you click on 'Continue donation'.
 
if we hit our donation milestone of £2000, our team leader Jon Hand has agreed to run the last mountain wearing only nature's finest.  Total sponsorships received by midnight 29 July :  AUD 400   -   GBP 1,357  -  USD 25  -  HKD 1000

Many thanks to British Land for their generous matching donation.

Thank you very much for sponsoring us in our challenge and supporting Puffin Magic and the rehabilitation of James. James we will be thinking of you throughout the challenge and wish you all the best with your rehabilitation. Take care mate.
 
Cheers
