Year 9 pupils hits the 3 peaks for charity
25 May 2023
Year 9 Jane definitely put her best foot forward when she walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks for three charities.
Jane’s mum works at Ribble Vets in Penwortham and a group from there decided to tackle Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in a day last weekend – 24 miles and 5,200ft of climbing!
They were doing the walk for Vetlife, The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) and Cancer Research.
Jane went along and took it all in her stride!
“Vetlife and RABI were the two charities chosen by my mum’s group and then we chose Cancer Research as a friend of my mum’s Nick Anderton, who is a professional footballer, was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer.
“It was tough. The peaks are all different. I enjoyed Pen-y-Ghent the most, Whernside is a long drag and Ingleborough is literally straight up.
“It’s 24.5 miles and so we started at 7.30am and it took us ten-and-a-half hours. I enjoyed it though. It was a good day out. I like all sports anyway so this suited me.”
For Cancer Research, they have raised around £1,200 and for the other two charities, the total is around £1,000.
