Yorkshire 3 Peaks charity challenge for Samaritans

This Friday 14th September James, Ian and honorary 3edgers Gareth Chaplin (Unite) and Conor Moss (Sheffield Hallam University) are attempting our first 3edges annual charity challenge.

This year it’s the Yorkshire 3 Peaks - with a twist. Most aim to complete the 24 mile, 5200 feet of ascent challenge in 12 hours. The record is under 3! Our target is under 8 hours, and rain is forecast for the whole day so it’s going to be a tough one…

We’re raising money for Samaritans, a life-changing listening service close to our hearts. Samaritans is under more demand now than it has ever been. Our fundraising goal is £5,000. Please give generously (and add Gift Aid if you can) to help this incredibly valuable and worthwhile cause.

Thank you so much for generous donations already received.

People talk to Samaritans anytime they like, in their own way, about whatever’s getting to them. You don’t have to be suicidal. Whatever you’re going through, call Samaritans free any time, from any phone, on 116 123.
