Three Peaks Sore Cheeks Challenge


In May 2014 we will take on what we have called the ‘Three Peaks Sore Cheeks Challenge' in aid of ‘Scoo-B-Doo’. We are Ken Hanna, Pete Hatherall, Scott Hurcombe and Tom Faulkner friends from Gloucestershire. We will climb the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell) and Wales (Snowdon) walking about 25 miles, climbing 10,000 feet and cycling the 460 miles between them within 72 hours. This challenge is 'another level' in both terms of training and the actual event to anything we have ever done before. With very little climbing experience and two of us not owning a bike until recently, the next 6 months of training is going to be tough.

Scoo-B-Doo is a charity that supports the Neonatal Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in caring for sick and premature babies. From day one, the charity has been actively fundraising to provide equipment and essential items, the money Scoo-B-Doo raises helps to maintain the service that is critical to the survival of these vulnerable patients.

We have set a minimum target of £5000 to raise which we will only do through the support and generosity of others. Please support us and keep up to date with our progress through this site and other social media. Most importantly please donate what you can afford, spread the word and forward to anyone that you think can help us. Your efforts will make a difference to saving the lives of others in Gloucestershire.
