Take on the 3 Peaks Challenge for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation

For all of the walkers among you, we may just have the ultimate challenge – fancy scaling the highest mountains in England, Wales, and Scotland within 24 hours, all to raise money for the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation? You should try the Three Peaks Challenge! Providing some truly breathtaking scenery along the way, the challenge will really push you to your limits – but boy, is it worth it! Tackle the summits of Ben Nevis (1344m), Scafell Pike (978m), and Snowdon (1085) across a period of two days (yes, that means taking on Scafell Pike in the dark!) from 13th-15th September 2014 and do something amazing for a couple in need.

An example itinerary, as well as a rundown of what’s included, can be found on the ‘Do it for Charity’ site. General information regarding the Three Peaks Challenge can be found here.

The registration fee for this challenge is just £99, with a sponsorship level of £600.

It’s not too late to support the abseil

Here’s the proof! Naomi and her team of intrepid abseilers

They’ve only gone and done it! Naomi and some truly amazing volunteers today completed their fantastic abseil challenge, raising some much-needed funds for The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation.

Naomi says, “I don’t like heights, who does?! Completing a challenge such as this is the very least I can do, though, when those we raise funds for face such terrible things every single day.”

However, please don’t assume that it’s too late for you to donate – you can give any amount, no matter how small or large, at any time of day by following this link. We hope you’ve been inspired by Naomi’s bravery – perhaps you’ll even join us on our next fundraising mission!

There are sure to be pictures of today’s fantastic event, so keep your eyes peeled on Facebook. We also hope to be able to reveal the total raised soon.

It is also not too late to donate towards Naomi’s bike ride, which will be taking place next weekend. Please give whatever you can by clicking here
