3 Peaks Challenge!

“We completed the 3 Peaks Challenge between 2:45pm on Monday and 6:00pm on Tuesday.  This involved the ascent and descent of Ben Nevis in 5 hours, Scafell Pike in under 4 hours and Snowdon in 4 hours.  It also included around 12 hours’ driving between the summits in addition to the long journey to the start and back home again (1500 miles total).  The 10 boys who took part were brilliant in their effort and determination and should be congratulated for this outstanding achievement.  I am indebted Mr Hammond and Mrs Dryland who came along solely to share the driving of the minibus on night and dawn sections between the 3 Peaks.  I am also grateful to Mr Peter Dalton, who worked with me in leading the group up and down all the summits safely.   The donation page is still open until the end of August and we are raising money jointly for Nk5 and Clic Sargent, the children and young persons’ cancer charity.  To view some short videos, please click here.   Thank you." -Simon Maytum
