Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
We are Writhlington School Sixth Form and we are raising money for England and Wales Mountain Rescue by taking on the Three Peaks Challenge!
On the 29th of September, 12 students are aiming to complete the National Three Peaks challenge in under 24 hours. This consists of climbing the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales; Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon. The total distance walked will be over 42 kilometres and we will climb over 3,408 metres between the three mountains.
We have chosen to support Mountain Rescue because some of our staff members were recently involved in an incident in which a member of the public lost their life. This really put into perspective how important Mountain Rescue teams are, keeping walkers, climbers and all those who enjoy the wilder places safe. We really want to help out, in any way we can. Because it could be one of us, any time.
Our team consists of 12 members of Writhlington Sixth Form. Amy, Will, Freddie, Isaac, Joe, Lizzie, Josie, Lydia, Joe, Rees, Rohan and Theo are a bunch of intrepid adventurers, determined to take on any challenge.
We would appreciate any donation you could make to support us on the adventure. Your money will go a long way in supporting the Search and Rescue teams all around the UK, which are mainly staffed by volunteers who love the great outdoors as much as we do.
