On the weekend covering 28th-30th of April, a team of 11 staff members will be travelling to Scotland, Northern England, and Wales in an attempt to complete the National Three Peaks Challenge.
The National Challenge involves climbing Ben Nevis (the tallest peak in Scotland), Scafell Pike (the tallest peak in England), and Snowdon (the tallest peak in Wales) within a specified time period. Our team will be attempting to complete the challenge, ie climbing all 3 peaks, in just 24 hours.
The team has completed 2 training walks in the local area, as well as a recent walk in the Brecon Beacons National Park. They are feeling confident and are looking forward to the challenges ahead.
The team will be raising money as a part of the expedition to support refurbishments of the library at Alfriston School. This space is in need of an update in books, storage, and furniture. All monies raised through this effort will be used to fund the improvement of the library, which will have a huge impact on Literacy at Alfriston, as well as providing the pupils with a more enjoyable reading environment. The team is hoping to raise £1000 for this cause.
Below is the Just Giving link set up for this challenge, which will enable you to make any donations you wish to make online. Additionally, the link provides further information on what we hope to use the money for:
You will be asked to make an account, but that simply includes your email (so a donation receipt can be emailed to you) and a password for accessibility. We ask please that all voluntary donations be made through the Just Giving site in an effort to keep all donated funds in one place.
We very much hope you will be able to support us and we look forward to keeping you up to date with all the news form this expedition.
