The Dirty Dozen

About the group

We are a group of school teachers taking on the challenge of the Three Peaks in memory of our friend Laura Popkin. Laura was a keen mountain climber and walker, as well as being a fantastic teacher and friend. Laura battled with cancer and spent time at Saint Francis Hospice where she was affectionately cared for until she sadly lost her fight. We all miss her and hope she will be watching with amusement throughout our adventure.
