Strive for the heights

WALKERS are being urged to grab their boots and sign up for the National Three Peaks Challenge on 15th July.

The NSPCC wants people to tackle Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – a combined height of 3,407 metres – in the space of a weekend.

Raising money for Childline, there is a registration fee of £50 per person – over 18s only – and a minimum sponsorship of £350. To register email northappeals@nspcc.org.uk or call 0113 2182736.
