Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page. We are going to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 31.08.2017 as our colleague Paul Jefferson who is a Police Officer based within the East Hull Community Policing team covering the Southcoates Wards in this area from the Preston Road Police Station, sadly suffered a stroke whilst in a meeting at work this year and this led to a secondary stroke whilst in hospital. He has been off work since, however, he is doing very well in rehabilitation.
Every year thousands of people are left with devastating disabilities after a stroke. In the UK, someone has a stroke every three and a half minutes. This adds up to 152,000 strokes every year, 25% of strokes happen to those under the age of 65. There are people who are participating in the walk who this has affected in their own
We aim to raise £2,500.00 for the Stroke Association by completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on 31st August 2017. The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24-miles long, and includes 5,200ft (1,585m) of ascent.
How does your money help?
£310 allows The Stroke Association to provide information to up to 50 families affected by stroke. £168 can buy a month’s supply of a drug tested for use in reducing brain damage after stroke. £155 allows The
Stroke Association to provide a stroke survivor or their carer with a grant for food, electricity, or an appliance they desperately need following a stroke. £100 can buy a pulse monitor used in cardiovascular rehabilitation programmes for stroke patients.

Mark Peasgood, Jennifer Parker, Gus Turnbull, Raphan Batty, Glenn Ganley, Jamie Campbell, Sophie Hunt, Ashley Cooper, Shaun Casson, Rachel Collins, Steve Hepworth, Simon Cherry, Dave Bull, Mark Kelsey, Paul Waller, Andy Horton, Mike Harvey, Matt Ferris, Alisha Staves, Carl Horth, Kallum Green, Stephen Clayton, Matt Ewins, Georgina Drewery and Josh Wealsby.
