Three Peaks Challenge
About the group
I am an avid outdoorsman and hillwalker/mountaineer.
I am also one of the founding Trustees of 'The Atlas Trust'. This challenge attempt is aimed at raising funds for the Trust and also to help a young girl that in January 2011 had to have all four limbs amputated as a result of Meningococcol Septicaemia. It is hoped that money raised will help her in her adaptation following the amputation.

Fundraising for The Atlas Trust
The Atlas Trust was founded with the aim of helping families and young people in the UK. Started almost entirely from scratch all the assistance we are able to provide to beneficiaries through grants is funded through fundraising efforts by the trustees and volunteers.
