Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge raises nearly £11,000

Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge raises nearly £11,000

And we’re still counting!    This Saturday we saw 65 intrepid walkers take part in our Yorkshire 3 and 1 Peak Challenges.  The 3 Peaks Challenge is 24.5 miles across difficult terrain and up (and down!) three daunting peaks – Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough under 12 hours.  The 1 Peak Challenge was to conquer Pen-y-Ghent over a 6 mile circuit.                       The money raised from both challenges will be going towards a vocational training school for the young in Kathmandu.  The school will focus on teenagers graduating from orphanages and the former bonded female child labourers (Kamlari) that Nepal Youth Foundation has rescued.  The youngsters will be able to gain training in four areas – maintenance (e.g. electrical and plumbing etc), carpentry, metal work and care giving.  Our plan is to train approximately 320 students a year which will consist of 390 hours of classroom training plus three months of on the job training.  Armed with these new invaluable skills we have no doubt that these youngsters will have all they need to make them ready to gain full time employment. Fundraising money is still coming in but the total currently stands at nearly £11,000.  Thank you to all the walkers (including the Queen’s Gurkhas), marshals and sponsors for all your support.  We plan to make this a yearly event so please do watch this space for more news The event was organised in conjunction with the charity Light Education Development and we want to express a huge thanks to the Fire and Ice Expeditions for all their hard... read more
