Torrential rain and gale force winds weren’t enough to stop an intrepid team from our South West region raising a fantastic £3,665 for a children’s charity.
Andy Tree, James Scholes, Max Pitcher, Ashley Acton and Kelly Penna set out with the intention of completing the Brecon Beacons 10 Peak Challenge, but with the risk of lightening and storms deemed too dangerous, the team changed their plans at the last minute to complete a 22km route further down the valley.
Despite gusts of more than 60mph, the team finished their challenge in an impressive 5 hours, 18 minutes, raising the most money of any team competing on the day and contributing to an incredible total of £26,200 raised for the charity.
The money will be donated to Youth Adventure Trust which helps vulnerable young people from Wiltshire and Swindon aged 11-16 years old unlock their potential and lead positive lives in the future.
This was a fantastic effort by everyone on the team, battling against the elements to raise money for a truly inspiring charity.
Well done everyone!
