Three Peaks Challenge 2011

20 Apr 2011
A team of eight “athletes” from Lifecycle Software plus 2 drivers are hoping to raise much needed funds in aid of charity for St Margaret’s Hospice, Somerset.

Kim Craven, Kelvin Chaffer, Richard Turner, Ben Cole, Mike Knell, Ross Devereux, Adam Thompson and Russell Hole will be taking on the Three Peaks Challenge on June 11th which involves climbing three of the highest peaks in the UK within 24 hours, using motorised transport to travel between the mountains. They will be supported on the challenge by their willing drivers Kim Ramsdale and Laura Chaffer.

The mountains climbed, in order of elevation, are Ben Nevis in Western Scotland, 1,344 metres (4,409 ft), Snowdon in North Wales, 1,085 metres (3,560 ft), and Scafell Pike in North-Western England, 978 metres (3,209 ft). In all the challenge involves some 42 kilometres (26 mi) of ascent and descent, with total travel approaching 765 kilometres (475 mi).

St Margaret’s is a charity committed to providing specialist palliative care, advice, support and respite to patients and their families living in Somerset and parts of neighbouring counties. Their care is available for those who have a terminal or life-limiting illness, for example cancer, motor neurone disease and chronic lung disease.

The team would welcome any support, and have set up a fundraising website for easy donation at:
