DfT 3 Peaks 2014's fundraising page

Clare Moriarty, Katie Pickersgill, Gemma Davies, Jim MacDonald, Brian Freemantle, Matthew Brown, Jonathan Mottershead and John Bengough have accepted the challenge of climbing the tallest mountains in Wales, England and Scotland - with a big slice of help from our friends in the rail industry. And all in 36(ish) hours.

Really - they should know better......

But no, they're willing to climb Snowdon in the dark (harder than it sounds), slog across a bog before even starting to ascend Scafell Pike (wetter than it sounds) then finally get to the top of Ben Nevis without being bitten to pieces by midges (itchier than it sounds).

And why? Because this - temporary - discomfort is as nothing to the abuse and exploitation faced by the kids on the street whom the Railway Children seeks to help. 

And so we ask you to help -  torches, dry socks and bite cream would be good - but donations would be even better.

With a long history of involvement with this event, this year the Department for Transport is fielding two teams who are fundraising together.

Your donation will make a difference, and is much appreciated.
