Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

About the group

Attempting the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of two different charities: Emma is raising money for La Esperanze Granada and Laura is raising money for Cancer Research UK.

Fundraising for La Esperanze Granada/Cancer Research UK

I'm doing the challenge in aid of La Esperanza Granada, the amazing Nicaragua-based charity where I volunteered a few months ago. For those of you who don't know anything about it, here's a link: La Esperanze Granada

Unfortunately, as they are not a UK charity, I can't use Just Giving, but you can donate directly to their Paypal account. PLEASE donate, however small an amount is appreciated, you can check out where the money goes on the 'Donation Store' part of their webpage. I've seen these guys in action and it's a fantastic cause!
If you donate with Paypay, in the 'what for' section please put 'Emma Aitken' so they can track the donations back to me.

Thank you =)

I'm doing this challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK. and any donations I manage to raise will definitely make the pain of the trek worthwhile. I know that this charity is close to the heart of many people and, as I am now in the process of completing a PhD that is funded by Cancer Research UK, it feels like the perfect time to try and give something back to this important cause.

Any donations, however small the amount, would be greatly appreciated!
