Welcome

Valour 2017 Three Peaks Challenge – Friday 7th July 2017

Help us raise over £1,400 for the Together Trust to send a group of deprived children on a week long adventure holiday of a lifetime.

On Friday 7th July a team from Valour Group are planning on take part in a 'Lake District Three Peaks Challenge' climbing the three highest mountains in England. We will be attempting to summit Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Skiddaw all within 24 hours.

Scafell pike

Why is this a tough challenge?

We will depart from Keswick at 8am Friday 7th July, we will start the challenge at the foot of Skiddaw, after which we will move on to Helvellyn and finally go on to ascend Scafell Pike. Skiddaw can be done in 4-5 hours, once completed we then cross the central fells, home to the biggest mountains in England and head to Thirlmere where we descend into the valley. Helvellyn is then climbed from Thirlmere and the ascent and descent takes around 4-5 hours. After meeting up with the support vehicle again we then travel on to Scafell Pike, the last of our peaks. The ascent of Scafell Pike takes around 2-3 hours.

This is an endurance challenge that pushes many to their physical limits. The clock starts once our team leave the vehicle on foot at the base of Skiddaw and will only finish once we have descended Scafell Pike and arrive back at the vehicle.

Charity

together trust

The team are looking for sponsorship for the 2017 event with all proceeds raised being donated to the "Together Trust" a local charity based in Cheadle which looks after and rehabilitates children with special needs and children that have been abused or abandoned by their parents or carers.

The Together Trust receives funding for the essential caring of the children from the state, however there is no funding available to give any of the children in their care any day trips or holidays. The team are hoping to raise £1,400 to give children most in need a weekend activity holiday in the Lake District.

Here the children can take part in confidence building events and learn more about the countryside. This may seem expensive, but due to the special requirements of the children, at least five full time carers need to be with them at all times.
