Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Well done to the group of Cystic Fibrosis Trust supporters who braved the weather conditions this weekend and took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in the stunning Yorkshire Dales.

The gruelling 26-mile route took them over 3 of the county’s highest summits – Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. That’s about a mile of ascent!

Despite horizontal sleet on top of the first peak and very strong winds on the second, group morale remained high and everybody did a fantastic job and raised lots of money in the process. It is estimated that the event will have raised over £8,000 for the CF Trust.
