Recap: Three Peaks Challenge 2021 | Norwich City Community Sports Foundation

Story added: 14th July 2021

Foundation fundraisers climb trio of peaks and raise £17,200

Nine fundraisers hit the three highest points in Scotland, England and Wales last weekend, while raising a whopping £17,200 for the Foundation.

Starting at the foot of the United Kingdom’s tallest mountain at 7am on Friday, the group climbed Ben Nevis, England’s Scafell Pike and finally Wales’ Mount Snowdon in a total time of 31 hours 30 minutes – finishing their epic challenge on Saturday afternoon at 2.30pm.

Gaining altitude for the Foundation were the Challenge team made up of Lee Clark, Alan Potter, Oliver Whipp, Jack Cleaver, Holly Crawford, Adam Goodson, Paul Bray, Chloe Peek and Josh Jenkins.

They were ably supported on their ascents and descents by our volunteer group leaders Matt Parkhouse, Luke Sweeney, Simon Ludkin, Roly Cook and Debbie Tooke.

Senior Fundraising & Events Manager Emma Fletcher-Dungay, who led the trip, said:

“A massive thank you to all our fundraisers, who were so resilient and tough on a challenge that tests you as much mentally as physically. The amount raised is the most we have ever raised from a Three Peaks Challenge, which we are so grateful for.

“Special mention to Lee Clark, who took on the challenge to raise money but also to push himself to change his lifestyle. To lose 5 ½ stone is an incredible effort and from my understanding he has already signed himself up for the Yorkshire Three Peaks!

“We couldn’t have done the event without our our wonderful support team of volunteers, from our team leaders who are so encouraging and supportive to our minibus drivers [Tanya Fletcher, Chris Yates, Paul Harding, Alex Guest and Aneliese Chapman] who transported the team the long distances between the peaks.”

The Foundation would like to thank Norfolk Hire and Link Radio for their kind support of the Challenge.

"These few days I'm going to look back on with a huge sense of pride. This was without a doubt the hardest thing I've ever taken on."
