Team story

[p]Hi, Thanks for visiting our Three Peaks fund raising page.[/p][p]On the 13th June Sabrina Naussedat, Ben Ting, Andrew Hunter, John Hildreth and David Taylor will set off on a challenge to conquer the highest mountain in England, Wales and Scotland, and all within a crazy 36 hours![/p][p]John and David have done this several times and know how hard the challenge is! This year John and David will be joined by Sabrina, Andrew and Ben whom will hopefully help John - and especially David (on his 13th three peaks) get up all three peaks![/p][p]Please sponsor them it will make such a difference to the life of street children around the world and will make the team super happy![/p][p][b]Railway Children exists to help vulnerable children in grave circumstances. Their objective is to provide relief to children and young people who are in conditions of need, hardship or distress and in particular to those living on the streets both in the UK, India and Africa.[/b][/p][p][b]For these children, the streets are often the only means of support available but also where they suffer abuse and exploitation.[/b][/p][p][b]Since our inception in 1995, Railway Children has helped many thousands of children and young people living alone and at risk on the streets.[/b][/p][p]What's involved?[/p][p]Some people estimate this is probably the equivalent of three half marathons on quite difficult terrain and of course there is little prospect of much sleep during the event.[/p][p][b][u]Snowdon[/u][/b][/p][p]Coaches will take us from Bangor Station to Pen-y-Pas car park. From there we will climb up the Pyg Track and descend by the same route. The total ascent is 725m (2381ft) with the summit standing at 1085m (3560ft). From the start to the summit the distance is approximately 4 miles (6.4km). It's not a difficult path to follow in the day but remember we will be climbing Snowdon at night so head torches are obligatory. Unfortunately the café at the top is not going to be open in the middle of the night. Incentive to get back down to the train! The route difficulty is regarded as intermediate.[/p][p]Approximate walking time: 4 hours[/p][p][b][u]Scafell Pike[/u][/b][/p][p]We travel on the charming Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway from Ravenglass to Dalegarth Station. Our route up Scafell Pike is longer than the traditional Three Peaks route as we will be walking from Dalegarth Station. Our route takes us past Boot village and across the Eskdale Moor past Burnmoor Tarn to Brackenclose. It's a gentle walk over rolling countryside, approximately 4.5 miles. We will then climb up past Brown Tongue and bear left over Hollow Stones towards Lingmell Col and bear right up to the summit. Scafell Pike is the smallest of the three mountains at 977m (3206ft). The terrain is a rocky path from rough crag to scree and has a rock summit. Minibuses will pick us up from Brackenclose to take us back to Ravenglass. The route difficulty is regarded as strenuous. The distance from Brackenclose to the top of the mountain is approximately 2.5 miles (4km).[/p][p]Approximate walking time: 6 hours[/p][p][b][u]Ben Nevis[/u][/b][/p][p]From Fort William, coaches will take us to Glen Nevis to go up the established tourist route from the Glen Nevis Visitors' Centre. The path zigzags the broad west slopes of Ben Nevis to the exposed summit plateau and then a rocky path goes over steep boulder fields. Ben Nevis is 1344m (4409ft) high and involves 1325m (4347ft) of climbing. The distance from the start to the summit is approximately 4.75 miles (7.6km). The route difficulty is regarded as intermediate to strenuous.[/p][p]Approximate walking time: 5.5 hours[/p][p]Please give generously, to help get the kids of the street's and either back with their families or in a safe place.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Railway Children.Charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation, so every penny goes to the charity.[/p][p]We really appreciate your support & so does the Railway Children.[/p][p]Thanks Sabrina, Andrew,Ben, John & David[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
