Helen's colleague, Barry Thompson, is leading a campaign to raise funds to purchase a new retinal imaging system for the Hull and East Yorkshire Eye Hospital in Hull. The camera system will be used to take images of the retinas of babies who cannot be imaged using a standard camera system. Barry's grand-daughter has had serious eye problems since she was very young, hence his aim to raise funds for this camera. The camera system will benefit babies and young children, including premature babies, by assisting in the diagnosis and monitoring of eye conditions. The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge will see a team tackling the 3 highest peaks in Yorkshire to raise funds for this worthy cause.

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge will be a huge personal challenge for all three of us (including William who is 12 years old) who have never undertaken anything as physically demanding before! The route is 24.5 miles starting from Horton-in-Ribblesdale and includes ascents and descents of Pen-y-Ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m) with a target of completing the circuit in 12 hours.
Please support us and this great cause.
