Fundraising for Hope And Aid Direct
On Saturday 23rd June, 2018 along with the team from 'Hope And Aid Direct' I will be embarking on what must be my toughest ever test - The National Three Peaks Challenge!
We will be climbing the highest summits of Scotland, England and Wales with 24 hours.
As if that wasn't enough on Saturday 12th May, 2018 I will also be attempting the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. This involves navigating 24 miles between 3 peaks in Yorkshire within 12 hours. Well, I may as well get myself in the spirit of things with a gentle warm up:)
These challenges are a seriously tough task for anyone but I am determined to complete it for such a great cause.
I really appreciate your donation - Think of it as a BOGOF! You donate for one you get the other for FREE! Please, please, please be generous with your donations so that Hope And Aid Direct can continue their good work (https://www.hopeandaiddirect.org.uk/).
