Update on Monday morning, June 11: The Neva Consultants team were still smiling as they completed the Three Peaks Challenge over the weekend.
The seven scaled Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest mountain, on Friday, Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain on Saturday, and Snowden’s, Wales’ highest mountain yesterday.
Their aim was to raise funds for the Children’s Respite Trust’s new centre in Uckfield which will enable it to continue supporting families throughout the area to get some respite from the strain of caring for a disabled child 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
So far £2,430 has been promised in donations, with another £2,757.50 in gift aid. There’s still time to boost the fund-raising here.
