A team from Premier Nutrition have donned their walking boots to tackle the Three Peaks Challenge, in aid of R.A.B.I.
The team of 21 hikers and four drivers is set to take on the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales, covering a distance of 23 miles and an ascent of 3,064 metres, starting at the foot of Snowdon on 21 June 2019. They plan to complete the challenge in 24 hours.
Heading the group is support nutritionist Hannah Barber. She said: “We’re aiming to complete the first leg on the Friday evening, so we can drive through the night to reach Scafell Pike before sunrise, allowing enough time to complete the final Ben Nevis leg by 6pm on the Saturday evening.
“It’s going to be a huge challenge for the team, but it’s nothing compared to the hardship of the individuals that R.A.B.I supports.
“The charity works tirelessly to provide financial support to aid farming families in times of need. As we all work in the agricultural industry, this is something that’s close to our hearts, and we’ve set a target to raise over £2,000 for the important cause.”
Donations are being collected through JustGiving and progress can be followed on Twitter: @ruminantpremier and LinkedIn: Premier Nutrition (UK).
