Local group to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise funds for the Tigers Trust
Posted on 9th June 2023 at 19:25
A group of seven ambitious individuals are readying themselves to tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks on Saturday 2nd of September to raise money for the Tigers Trust, the partnered charity of Hull City Football Club.
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a 24.5-mile challenge that includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. The route takes on the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent (694 metres), Whernside (736 metres) and Ingleborough (723 metres).
This is the perfect challenge for participants who are of an adventurous spirit and an open mind, but perhaps haven’t taken on a strenuous challenge event before and are hoping to push themselves out of their comfort zone.
Each person taking part is aiming to raise at least £200 for the Tigers Trust to enable the charity to support more individuals across the local community.
Across the 2021/2022 season alone, the Trust engaged with 16,775 unique individuals across its various sport and education programmes.
Alex Lisney, who works for the Trust, will also take part and spoke enthusiastically about the upcoming challenge: “I can’t wait to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks! Although I’m well aware it won’t be easy, the fact that it’s being done for an admirable cause makes it even more rewarding. It’ll be a real group effort, and I’m sure the satisfaction of completing it will be huge.”
The Trust’s Marketing and Communications Lead, Olly Burdett, commended the participants on their efforts: “This is an admirable feat, and we are immensely grateful for these generous souls undertaking such an ambitious endeavour. The proceeds will be incredibly beneficial to our area, and we are looking forward to bringing news of more fundraising initiatives soon.”
We wish all seven of these heroic individuals the best of luck in their journey, and kindly ask those who would like to make a contribution to please do so by clicking the link.
