About the group

We are a group of quarry workers and after a fellow worker Bucky Symes who served 40 years for the company past away earlier this year the four of us decided to do some fundraising for charity in his name. Bucky was an avid walker and had walked two of the three peaks. So it was an easy decision to decide to attempt to complete the three peaks challenge for the Dorset and Somerset air ambulance in Bucky Symes' memory.
