Story

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

You may remember that a group of landscapers, plants-people, designers and contractors first came together to raise money for
Perennial in 2013 with the Three Peaks Extreme challenge. They climbed the three highest peaks in the UK, and cycled between them, in just 5 days raising over £26,000 for Perennial. 

This year they’re back with a bigger team, a different challenge and a higher target.

Two teams of cyclists will set off from Snowdon in September 2016, one team on road bikes, the other on mountain bikes, both aiming for Lands End. One team will stay on-road, the other will ride exclusively off-road. Who will reach Lands End quickest, and who will raise the most money? 

Although riding a bike has never been my forte, I have supported the 'Three Peakers' throughout their epic cycling escapades
both in 2013 and 2016. I truly feel like I’m part of the team! Their Snowdon to Lands End challenge is not for the faint hearted - reading about the climbs and the distances they will have to travel each day brings me out in a cold sweat - goodness knows how they will feel!!  But I have seen first-hand how the money raised through fundraising challenges such as this one makes a difference to people’s lives. Perennial’s services touch the lives of horticulturists and
their families each and every day of the year. When injury or illness, hardship or heartache, bereavement or breakdown hit, Perennial Caseworkers are there to offer support, friendship and expertise for as long as it takes. 

Thank you to each and every person who has donated to this brilliant challenge and thank you to all the riders and sponsors who have dedicated their summer to raising money to help colleagues in
need. 

You are all winners!
