Team story

[p]Hi, thank you so much for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to our chosen charities, the Felix Fund and Helen & Douglas House with a 50/50 split.[/p][p][b]Our mission:[/b][/p][p][b]3 Peaks, 24 Hours, 4 women , £3K,  2 Charities [/b][/p]TODAY IS THE DAY!! The climbing team are now on their way to the mountains - Ben Nevis first, Scafell next and lastly Snowdon.  They have been training over the last few months with gym sessions, a training climb up Snowdon and another up Scafell (happening this week), plus lots of running, gym sessions & dieting - you name it! Everyone has done their bit.[lt]br /[gt][p]We've also been busy fundraising and have raised nearly £1400.00 through various events with more in the pipeline.   We've still got some way to go to reach our £3,000 total and we are collecting unwanted items for car boot sales.  [span=color: #800080;][i][b]Check out our photos for our recent efforts :)[lt]br /[gt][/b][/i][/span][/p][p]This is a very tough challenge for us.  Some of the team had to start a fitness regime from scratch as well as having to lose weight before the event. Some of us also have husbands away for the duration of the challenge, so we find ourselves juggling jobs, children and a tough fitness regime. But we all feel that the challenges facing us are insignificant compared to the challenges faced by the people who benefit from the two charities that we are supporting.  You can read a bit more about the charities here:[/p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Helen & Douglas House[/span][/b] has the time and expertise to care for children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support their families. The two hospice houses offer specialist symptom and pain management, medically-supported short breaks and end-of-life care, as well as counselling and practical support for the whole family.[p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]Felix Fund[/span][/b] supports bomb disposal experts and their families. The Charity funds therapeutic breaks for bomb disposal teams returning from Afghanistan and other welfare and rehabilitation facilities for EOD units. We also provide hardship grants for individual members of ‘the bomb disposal family’ in need.[/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you so much for any donations, however small.[/p]
