Presspart Blackburn Yorkshire Three Peaks Charity Walk

Over the Bank Holiday weekend intrepid employees of Presspart Blackburn, along with support from colleagues and family and friends, undertook the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and Cancer Research UK.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks is a very physically challenging and strenuous walk and can also be very dangerous with cloud cover and poor weather conditions descending rapidly. The walk is 24 miles long over exposed moorland and includes ascending the three highest mountains in the Yorkshire Dales- Pen-Y-Ghent ( 691m), Whernside (728m) and Ingleborough (723m)- all in one day.

As the walk can take anywhere from 10-14 hours to complete the walkers had an early start to ensure it was completed in daylight, with the team setting off just before 8am to tackle the first mountain of Pen-Y-Ghent.

The weather conditions for the day were very dry and sunny. The first of the team managed to complete the walk in just under 9 hours, with the final members of the team crossing the line just before 10pm, tired but relieved to have completed it.

To show you how tough this walk is, not everyone managed to complete it, with two members of the team dropping out mid-walk due to fatigue and blisters.

There are no firm figures for how much was raised for the two charities but we are hoping that we can at least match what was raised from last years’ sponsored bike ride, which was £5,000 for Asthma UK and the British Heart Foundation.

A special thank you to all those that sponsored the walkers, those that came to give their support on the day, to Tony Bramley who manned the support vehicle on the day, and finally Presspart Blackburn for putting on refreshments at the end of the gruelling challenge.
