County's 3 Peaks
About the group
It costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care that Cornwall Hospice care provide to their patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners. The other £4 million is raised via the support of people in Cornwall.
To help achieve this, a brave team at County Confectionery Ltd, St Ives have decided to dust off their walking boots and sign up for the National Three peaks challenge! The challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours. Yes, that’s right…24 Hours…not for the faint hearted!
The total ascent is 3064 metres (10,052ft); that’s a lot of leg work! With
a total driving distance of 462 miles.
As you can imagine, over the last 3 months, we have spent hours on planning, preparation and all-weather training which all forms part of the challenge.
The team will set off on the 28th June to start the challenge on Saturday 29th June. Managing directors Mark Brian, Ulrik Moes and Tor Osmundsen will be leading the team, accompanied by team members, Jess Hinton Rowe, Kirsty Mann, Valentina Pavlova, Kamila Cabicarova, Marcus Perry, Ross Burrow, Vicki Halkier, Natalie Stevens and Sheila Olds.
