My story

[p][b]Hi, thanks for visiting our page.[/b][/p] [p][b]Valour 2013 Three Peaks Challenge – Friday 19[sup]th[/sup] July 2013[/b][/p] [p][b]Help us raise over £3,000 for the Together Trust to send a group of deprived children on a week long adventure holiday of a lifetime.[/b][/p] [p][b]On Friday 19[sup]th[/sup] July a team from Valour Finance Group are planning on take part in a 'Lake District Three Peaks Challenge' climbing the three highest mountains in England. We will be attempting to summit Scafell Pike, Helvellyn and Skiddaw all within 24 hours.[/b][/p] [p][b]We will depart from Keswick at 8 am Saturday when we will transfer  to the start of the challenge at the foot of Scafell Pike.  The ascent of Scafell Pike takes around 2-3 hours. We then cross the central fells, home to the biggest mountains in England and head to Thirlmere where we descend into the valley. Helvellyn is then climbed from Thirlmere and the ascent and descent takes around 4 -5 hours. After meeting up with the support vehicle again we now travel in the valley heading for Skiddaw, the last of our peaks which overlooks Keswick.  Typically completed in the dark Skiddaw can be done in 4-5 hours and we arrive back at the foot of the mountain in Keswick on Sunday morning.[/b][/p] [p][b]This is an endurance challenge that pushes many to their physical limits. The clock starts once our team leave the vehicle on foot at the base of Scaffel Pike and will only finish once we have descended Skiddaw and arrive back at the vehicle.[/b][/p] [p][b]The team are looking for sponsorship for the 2013 event with all proceeds raised being donated to the "Together Trust"  a local charity based in Cheadle which looks after and rehabilitates children with special needs and children that have been abused or abandoned by their parents of carers.[/b][/p] [p][b]The Together Trust receives funding for the essential caring of the children from the state, however there is no funding available to give any of the children in their care any day trips or holidays. The team are hoping to raise £3,000 to give fifteen of the children most in need a weekend activity holiday in the Lake District.[/b][/p] [p][b]Here the children can take part in confidence building events and learn more about the countryside. This may seem expensive, but due to the special requirements of the children, at least five full time carers need to be with them at all times.[/b][/p] [p][b]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed on to our chosen charity - Together Trust [url=http://www.togethertrust.org.uk/]http://www.togethertrust.org.uk/[/url][/b][/p] [p][b]We [span=text-decoration: underline;]really appreciate[/span] all your support and thank you for any donations.[/b][/p] [p][b]You can follow our training and progress on our website[url=http://www.valourthreepeakschallenge.org/]http://www.valourthreepeakschallenge.org/[/url] - or on Twitter [url=https://twitter.com/#!/ValourFinancial]https://twitter.com/#!/ValourFinancial[/url][/b][/p]
