Walkers scale Britain's biggest peaks for the Foundation

This weekend, 28 hardy fundraisers triumphantly completed the Three Peaks Challenge, raising thousands of pounds for the Community Sports Foundation (CSF).

The group covered 22.5 miles, scaling the UK’s three highest peaks: Ben Nevis at 4,409 ft, Scafell Pike at 3,209 ft and Mount Snowdon at 3,560 ft.

Over £8,500 has been raised so far for the Foundation’s work with disadvantaged and disabled people across the county.

CSF Fundraising and Events Manager Emma Fletcher supported the walkers throughout the event. She commented:

“Everyone who took part pushed themselves very hard and worked together to complete the challenge. It is a physically and mentally demanding event that tests the best!

“The group had to cope with changing clothes, eating, drinking and sleeping whilst they travelled to their next destination by road.

I’d like to say thank you to the team leaders and support drivers and a huge well done to the group for their incredible achievement and for raising such an impressive amount of money.”

The Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in the challenge and also to all those who were kind enough to contribute to such a fantastic cause.
