Barclays 5 Peaks in 48 hours Challenge

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

 

At 8am on 3 July 2014, a team from Barclays will gather in North Wales and take their collective first step towards the summit of Mount Snowdon.  All being well, we will follow the scaling of the highest peak in Wales with those in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – all in under 48 hours!!

 

So why, you might ask, are we taking on this not insignificant challenge?  Well, it's for a vital cause, that's why.  Unemployment is one of the biggest problems facing society today and with over 1 million under-25s in the UK out of work, the growth of a 'Lost Generation' of unemployed threatens to have catastrophic consequences for all our futures.  We’re working with the charity Tomorrow's People, who are dedicated to getting the most disadvantaged unemployed people in the hardest to reach parts of our communities into jobs, breaking the cycle of generational worklessness.  Tomorrow's People rely on the public's generosity to do their great work, so 48 hours of pain is a small price for us to pay to help their cause.

 

So, even if it is out of a morbid fascination to hear how much pain we go through, please dig deep, donate to a great cause and sponsor us up those peaks!

 

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails.

That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
