Wellesley takes on the Three Peaks Challenge

On Tuesday 18th June, Several intrepid staff members took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, all within 24 hours, fundraising for the Wellesley Charitable Foundation.

Our team conquered a total walking distance of 23 miles and scaling an ascent of 10,052 ft. The mountains in question are:

  • Ben Nevis, Scotland (1,345m)
  • Scafell Pike, England (978m)
  • Snowdon, Wales (1,085m)

We were delighted to raise over £22,500 for the Wellesley Charitable Foundation, for local organisations in Sussex and the surrounding counties that help ill or disadvantaged children – a cause close to all of our hearts. Set up in September 2012, the Foundation has raised £102,769 for over 30 organisations so far.
