Team story

[p]This story began with a group of workmates at Dover District Council who wanted to support those in need in the local area. Catching Lives, a local independent charity, was chosen as it genuinely transforms the lives of people, without the national awareness or advertising of larger well known charities.[/p][p]Our challenge began at the base of Ben Nevis (which stands at 4,413 ft) at 5pm on the 14th June, and 5 hours 17 minutes later we had made it to the summit and back and jumped in the mini bus to head to Scafell Pike (3, 209 ft) in Cumbria.[/p][p]Scafell was a challenge for all of us… it pushed us all to our limits (apart from Alex as he’s super human!). But we stayed as a team, kept each other going and focussed on our goal. We made it to the summit and back in 4 hours 32 minutes. By the end we all had sore knees and tired legs… but tonnes of enthusiasm! Mainly because our two drivers/ support crew (Dave and Karen) were more amazing than I can begin to describe.[/p][p]The team then headed to Snowdon (3, 560 ft) to complete our final climb which we completed in an impressive 4 hours 18 minutes. This meant that we had climbed all 3 peaks in a period of 23 hours 45 minutes![/p][p]Thank you all for your kind donations and for supporting us during our challenge.[/p][p][b][i]Catching Lives is an independent charity aimed at supporting the rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed in Canterbury and East Kent; those who have, for many reasons, fallen through the gaps in society and feel they have nowhere else to turn.[/i][/b][/p][p]Catching Lives-[/p][p]Website- [url=https://www.catchinglives.org][i]https://www.catchinglives.org[/i][/url][/p][p][i]Facebook- [/i][url=https://www.facebook.com/catchinglives/][i]https://www.facebook.com/catchinglives/[/i][/url][/p][p][i]Twitter- @CatchingLives[/i][/p][p]Instagram- [url=https://www.instagram.com/catchinglives/][i]https://www.instagram.com/catchinglives/[/i][/url][/p]
