COLLEAGUES from a Chester holiday firm face a mountainous challenge this weekend.
Simon Taylor, Peter Weir, Clive Sykes, Michelle Lawton, Tom Lowes, Anthony Challinor-Cole, Richard Bond, Simon Pospisil and Adam Ratcliffe, of Sykes Cottages holiday agency in Hoole hope to raise £5,000 for Claire House and Children Today by completing the Three Peaks Challenge.
The ten workmates will have to climb Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales in 24 hours starting tomorrow, Friday June 29.
Tom Lowes said: “Born and raised in the Lakes I have been walking the hills since I was three years old. I have already done the Three Peaks Challenge when I was in peak fitness but getting fit for this one has been a challenge in itself.”
Anthony Challinor-Cole added: “In all honesty I have very limited walking history - having said that since agreeing to take part, I have started walking the five miles to and from work every day.I have climbed Snowdon twice, once at three in the morning to watch the sun rise, the view was stunning!”
