Fundraiser of the week: Emily's Yorkshire Three Peaks team

September 04, 2020

Our fundraiser of the week is Emily and her team of Masie, Sacha and Kathryn, who walked, climbed, and scrambled the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge together on 25 August in support of Emily’s sister, who has M.E.

In reference to their fundraising, Emily said:

“When deciding on a charity to fundraise for, the personal connection that I had to Action for M.E., due to my sister’s diagnosis, seemed to provide a clear answer.”

With an initial goal of completing the challenge in 24 hours, the team went one better and finished up in 11hrs 59m. The group’s efforts saw them scale Pen-y-Ghent (694m), Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m), raising almost £1,000 to support our work in the process.

Thank you all for your support and what a great effort from the whole team! For anyone interested, you can visit Emily’s team fundraising page for more details.
