National Three Peaks Challenge with Yarrow House Day Nursery

Alexandra, Ben's eldest sister, completed the event along with Friend's of Yarrow House where Alexandra's daughter Nell attends nursery. The event has to be completed within 24hrs so it requires a fair degree of fitness. The peaks climbed are Scotland's Ben Nevis at 1344m, Scarfell Pike at 978m in the Lake District and finally Snowdon standing at 1085m in North Wales.

 


 

During what turned out to be one of the wettest weekends of the year they had to abandon their first attempt having only completed Ben Nevis and Scarfell.

However, not to be out done by the weather on their second attempt they completed all 3 peaks with half an hour to spare, finishing at Snowdon at 4.30pm on Monday 30th July.

So far they have raised £1,465.00

Many thanks to all those that have very kindly donated.
