Our team will attempt to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 'one go'. These are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales. To make it a real challenge, we have added a 24hr time-limit to our trek and the nerves are starting to kick in.
For this challenge we have partnered with War Child and all donations towards this campaign will go towards their work and the children they support.
Children don't start wars. But millions of them have to live with the consequences of conflict every day. War ends lives and steals childhoods. Homes, schools and families the very things that children rely on for security and support are destroyed. Unable to protect themselves, many children are alone, abused, exploited.
This is where War Child comes in. They protect, educate, and stand up for the rights of children in war. War Child aims to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stays to support them through their recovery. They keep them safe, help them to learn and overcome their experiences, and equip them with skills for the future.
Your donation will help deliver the vital and life-saving work War Child does.
