C4C and Thomas’ School tackle the ’3 Peaks Challenge’

During the week-end of the 6th and 7th August, a group from Thomas’ School, Clapham and C4C will be tackling the endurance testing, ‘3 Peaks Challenge’

In just one 24hr period, they will climb and travel between the tallest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon). The distance walked will be around 25 miles; the height climbed around 10,000 feet.

The group will consist of Rebecca Redding, Philip Redding, Irene Smith, Stacey Ali, Charles Vallance, Alex Clode, Andy Sellins, Andy Dalby-Welsh, Alex Bassan, Donovan Miller, Perry Sophocleous and Navjeet Sira. The challenge will be great and the training tough but the group know that their ‘Herculian’ efforts will raise a tremendous amount of much needed funds for C4C. Rebecca (Redding) from Thomas’ School comments:

“The team form Thomas’s Clapham are excited about completing a year of fundraising for Cricket for Change by attempting this challenge. Training is well underway with a few visits to the physio to help with the various injuries picked up as a result of the bodily shock of physical activity. There has been much banter but underlying this bravado is a real commitment to the challenge and raising as much money as possible for C4C. It will not be easy and we are very nervous but we hope we can make a difference with the money we raise. Wish us luck!”
