Take the climb for Trust

DEARNE Valley residents are being urged to take on a New Year challenge and climb the highest mountains in the country for charity.

The Meningitis Trust want to hear from people willing to climb the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland in just 36 hours to help people living with the disease.

The Three Peaks Challenge starts at Snowdon in North Wales. Participants, individuals or groups, are then taken by coach to the bottom of Scafell in the Lake District – to trek Scafell in the dark.

Finally, the team is whisked up to Scotland to climb the highest of the three mountains, Ben Nevis.

It will take place between May 11 and 13 and July 6 and 8,

To sign up, visit the trust’s website at www.meningitis-trust.org or contact Liv Maybank on 0845 120 4530.
