Summits Up With These Guys
About the group
The 5 of us are stepping up (get it?) to the challenge of completing the National 3 peaks challenge. This involves driving to and scaling Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden all within a 24 hour time limit!
As we are risking severe chaffing, grazes and boo boos we thought this might be a good opportunity to also raise money for a worthy cause. Your donations to help us raise our target of £750 for the Alzheimers Society would be fantastic and very much appreciated.

Fundraising for Alzheimers Society
Alzheimer's Society is a United Kingdom care and research charity for people with dementia and their carers. It operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, while its sister charities Alzheimer Scotland and Alzheimer's Society of Ireland cover Scotland and the Republic of Ireland respectively.
Despite its name, the charity does not exclusively help people with Alzheimer's disease. There are many types of dementia, which is an umbrella term. Dementia types include vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, frontotemporal dementia, Korsakoff's syndrome, Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, HIV related cognitive impairment, mild cognitive impairment, and other rarer causes of dementia.
It is a membership organisation, which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many of the 25,000 members have personal experience of dementia, as carers, health professionals or people with dementia themselves.
The society relies on voluntary donations from the public through fundraising and other activities.
