About the group
Following on from the success of the National Three Peaks Challenge we took on two years ago, we have decided (after a suitable period of recovery!), to attempt another trekking challenge in the form of the Yorkshire Three Peaks and in the process, raise as much money as possible for some very deserving charities.
The team of Adam, Ben, Duncan, Marcus and Simon will be completing the event on 10th June 2017. Please take some time to check out the charities we are supporting that are very important to the members of our team. Any donation is welcome so please do what you can to help us achieve our target and raise as much as we can for these charities.
