Walkers raise thousands for Foundation
Last weekend, 23 fundraisers triumphantly completed the Three Peaks Challenge, raising thousands of pounds for the Community Sports Foundation (CSF).
The group walked 22.5 miles (and over 1 million steps!) in extremely hot weather conditions, scaling three of the UK’s highest peaks: Ben Nevis at 4,409 ft, Scafell Pike at 3,209 ft and Mount Snowdon at 3,560 ft.
Over £7,000 has been raised so far for the Foundation’s work with disadvantaged and disabled people across Norfolk.
CSF Senior Fundraising and Events Manager Emma Fletcher supported the walkers throughout the event. She said:
“Wow! What an amazing group who worked so well together. This challenge is tough but they really did make it look so easy despite the very warm conditions. I think the added incentive of completing in time to watch the England game may have spurred them on too!
“I really can’t thank the team leaders and support volunteers enough for guiding the group safely and ensuring they were supported at the bottom of each mountain. I would also like to thank Barford Van Hire and Link Radio for their essential event support.
“We’ve yet to finalise the exact amount raised, as we expect donations to continue to come in over the next few weeks.”
