National Three Peaks Challenge for Diabetes UK in loving memory of Andrea Semple

About the group

Sophie, 28, Carlisle.
Laura (Smithy), 38, Carlisle.
Bella, 35, Kendal.
Nicola, 27, Greenock.

Myself (Sophie), Smithy and Bella have known each other for over 11 years and the recent tragic death of one of our greatest friends has brought us as close as we’ve ever been. We will be supported on this walk by my partner, Nicola, who has kindly agreed to participate.

What makes this challenge somewhat more difficult is the fact that I’m recovering from a snapped Achilles’ tendon and Bella is recovering from two major foot operations!

Fundraising for Diabetes UK

On the 2nd of December 2019, a close friend of ours, Andrea Semple, tragically suffered a heart attack and sadly for anyone that ever knew her, she passed away at her home in Newcastle just a week before her 37th birthday and just before Christmas. Andrea was a type one diabetic.

On the 18th June 2020 we aim to concur the National Three Peak Challenge where we will climb the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales to raise as much money as possible for Diabetes UK and to promote awareness around the condition our friend lived with every day.

Below is the link to our JustGiving page in loving memory of our friend Andrea.

Any donations would be really appreciated and are paid directly to Diabetes UK to fund further pioneering research focusing on bettering the lives of people with diabetes and working towards a future free of the condition.

We will keep you all updated with our training progress and fundraising. Please feel free to share this page to help us raise as much as we can on our challenge, on our friend’s behalf and the many other millions of sufferers.

Thank you everyone for any donations and sponsors, you will be making a difference to people’s lives
