Charity looking for peak performances

Have your say

We are appealing to brave people to lace up their boots and endure the highest peaks Scotland, Wales and England can offer – in only 24 hours.

Meningitis UK’s Three Peaks challenge asks participants to climb Ben Nevis (1,344m), Mount Snowdon (1,085m) and Scafell Pike (978m).

The annual adventure will see people climb 3,000 vertical metres and travel 480 miles between the peaks. But it is not all arduous as there are plenty of chances to witness picturesque countryside during the event from May 17 to 19.

Meningitis UK has a single focus – to find a vaccine to wipe out all forms of meningitis Tragically, meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK every year, and kill more children under five than any other infectious disease.

To take part and help us achieve our vision, please contact me on 0117 303 3345 or email for a sponsorship pack.
