The National Three Peaks Challenge is to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in less than 24 hours. This is a total hike of 26 miles and a total ascent of 3000m. The timer starts from the start of Ben Nevis to the end of Snowdon including travel between the peaks.
As it will be very difficult and probably not that much fun we thought we’d take the opportunity to raise money for a good cause.
We have chosen to support one of Tate and Lyle Sugars’ community partners Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA). We have personally seen the good work that NASSA do and we are keen to support them, so please give if you can. All the money we raise will be matched by Tate and Lyle Sugars.
“At NASSA we believe that every child is special and can ‘speak the language of sport’. We want to make good players – but our number one goal is to make good people! Our purpose is for all young people to have the opportunity to participate in, enjoy and learn through sport
Who Are we?

We provide after school training clubs, a Saturday Academy, High Flyers Developmental Programme, volunteer programme, opportunities to achieve accreditation and NVQs, opportunities to gain coaching qualifications, Summer Scheme, holiday clubs and outreach work in local parks and cages.
