Members of the Pickstock Group (Terry Lunt, Andrew Chadwick, Nick Scott, James Ellis, Richard Rigby, Kevin Arthur, Bryce Roberts,Thomas Shillito, Ben Bawtree-Jobson, Nick Harper, Adam Norton,Thomas Thorpe, Kate Pickstock and Sara Pickstock) are taking on the Three Peak Challenge in June 2013, which has been named “Martin’s Mountains.”
The challenge is in memory of Martin Thorpe, both a friend and colleague, who sadly passed away last year after battling with cancer. Donations and sponsorship will be in aid of Shropshire and North Wales Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The walk will involve three mountains in three countries. Beginning at Ben Nevis, Scotland (1344m), to Scafell Pike, England (978m) and finishing the challenge with Snowdon, Wales (1085m).
In addition to the Three Peak Challenge, Alex Morris will be completing a sky dive on Saturday the 4 May, Alex is petrified of heights and so completing this challenge will be a huge achievement for him, he believes that Marie Curie Cancer Care is such a worthy cause that he is willing to face his fear.
Marie Curie Cancer Care, Shropshire and North Wales, provide high quality care and support for those at the end of their life. Approximately 50 percent of the cost of nursing care and hospices is received from the NHS – the rest comes through fundraising events.
Patients with terminal conditions are cared for at their own home, close to their family and friends, Marie Curie makes this possible for thousands of patients and carers every year.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
