Story

Hey; our fundraising team consists of Ben Tasker, Stefano Congiu and William Puddy.

We all know how hard the armed forces work. As friends we have decided to show our support to our service men and women in raising money and awareness in completing the National Three Peaks Challenge for the Help for Heroes. The wounded often do not recieve all the support they need. The Help for Heroes Charity does, as most of us already know, a considerable amount to help.

We have set ourselves the challenge of completing the National Three Peaks Challenge in just TWENTY FOUR HOURS! The mountain endurance event encompasses the three tallest mountains in Great Britain. 

The mountains climbed, in order of elevation, are Ben Nevis in Western Scotland, 1,344 metres (4,409 ft), Snowdon in North Wales, 1,085 metres (3,560 ft), and Scafell Pike in North-Western England, 978 metres (3,209 ft). In all the challenge involves some 42 kilometres (26 mi) of ascent and descent, with total travel approaching 765 kilometres (475 mi). . - Source Wiki

The challenge will be completed in August 2012 date weather permiting. 

We will start at the foot of Ben Nevis and finish the challenge as fast as possible at the foot of the third mountain - Snowdon. We are using motorised transport to travel between the mountains. Speeding in the event is classed as cheating so rest assured we will be stiking to the speed limits.

We would be very grateful if you could support us in supporting the charity and donate. Even if you can not donate yourself we would be very grateful if you could spread the word and repost our challenge. Getting the word around is fundamental to our success so reposting this on social network sites so others are aware of our challenge and can therefore donate to this worthy cause.  

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
