Three Peaks Challenge for Ranelagh School staff
May 31, 2012
Eight teachers from the same school are taking a trip away from the classroom to climb the three highest mountains in the UK.
Teachers from Ranelagh School, Ranelagh Drive, will try to complete the Three Peaks Challenge on Wednesday, June 6, to raise charity cash.
The team hopes to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales within 24 hours.
Team member Karen Hope said: “We are really excited about this challenge and hope that we can make a big difference to charities that we are all passionate about.”
The walkers hope to raise £10,000 for WaterAid, Thames Hospicecare and Ranelagh School.
In preparation for the challenge they have been training in the Brecon Beacons and in Snowdonia.
Andrew Dax said: “Our day in the Brecon Beacons was a great opportunity to bond as a team and mentally and physically prepare us for the challenge ahead.”
