33 walkers recently took on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in aid of PhysCap.

 

Following a tough 24.5 miles up and down Yorkshire’s finest peaks, a massive £20,000 was raised for Leeds-based children’s charity, PhysCap.

 

Run solely by volunteers, PhysCap is committed to raising vital funds to help support mental and physically disabled children and their families across Yorkshire.

 

In a bid to raise as much money as possible, 34 walkers donned their sturdiest walking boots to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, and despite treacherous weather conditions, the team pushed through and managed to complete the challenge in around 10 hours.

 

Speaking on behalf of PhysCap, chief volunteer and chairman, Daniel Gray, said: “This particular fundraiser has been an incredible success and it’s down to the determination of our walkers and to the people who’ve so kindly donated money to the cause.

 

“The money we’ve raised will go a long way to helping those children and their families who rely so heavily on the support PhysCap offers.”
