This July, I’ll be leading a group of colleagues through a gruelling task in the name of charity as we take on the National 3 Peaks Challenge.
We’ll scale Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon – the three highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales. We’ll be racing against the clock, and aim to have conquered all three in just 24 hours.
Tackling these mountains in such a short space of time is a real test, something I know first-hand because I participated in the same challenge 12 years ago (when I was very much fitter and both my knees were working.)
Afterwards I swore I would never do it again – it was definitely the most difficult event that I had ever taken part in and was both a physical and psychological struggle to complete.
Whilst recounting my experience, I found a group of colleagues who wanted to attempt the challenge and who have persuaded me to lead a further attempt, and so here I am again!
This time we’re hoping to raise money for Headway Bristol, a very worthwhile charity doing great work in helping people who are suffering from the sometimes devastating consequences of brain injuries.
This year Headway Bristol are celebrating their 40th anniversary. Having acted on behalf of the victims of such injuries, I recognise the huge difference Headway Bristol make to the people they help in the great work that they do.
Anything we can do to assist them is worthwhile and I hope we can raise awareness of this great organisation. Anyone who wishes to donate can head to our fundraising page.
Kate Croucher, CEO of Headway Bristol, has told us she’s delighted to have the support of Co-op Legal Services.
She said: “It’s wonderful to have the support of a business such as Co-op Legal services who not only recognise the work that we do, but the fact that a brain injury can happen to any of us, at any time and can have a devastating effect on individuals and families.”
“The money they will raise through their amazing efforts to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge will go directly towards providing our much needed services to those who have suffered a brain injury, and to their families and carers”.
Stay tuned to find out how we get on in July.
