    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The National Three Peaks Challenge (climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon in 24 hours) seemed like a good idea to celebrate the upcoming 40th Birthday of one of our 12 strong team.

    As most of us have children who will be in Year 3 of Falkland Primary School, Newbury, from September, we're going to make it worthwhile by raising money for new furniture for their classrooms.

    We will be organising this ourselves: 10 of us will be walking and 2 drivers will be ensuring we get to each peak in plenty of time.

    We're setting off on from Ben Nevis on Friday 15th of September walking 24+ miles and travelling approximately 460 miles by road completing Snowdon before tea.

      An amazing and incredibly challenging experience! All of us attempted the final climb with only 1 member turning back for safety reasons due to knee injury. Snowdon took its toll on tired bodies with 5 of the group coming in under the 24 hr mark needing a 1h 30m ascent to achieve it. The remaining 4 all dug deep into physical and mental reserves to hit the summit and all get down safely shortly after dark. 3 Peaks meant 32 miles of walking, 3,500m climbing and 12K Calories burned. Your generosity has been amazing. Many, many thanks,

      Thanks to the massive generosity of our supporters, we've hit our £2,000 target, so as we head towards Friday's challenge we've increased it to £2,500. We've all trained hard, and now getting ready for what looks likely to be a slightly snowy Ben Nevis at 5pm on Friday. Thanks again for your brilliant support.
