An amazing group of people recently challenged themselves to climb Scafell Pike mountain, to help raise funds for the PPBF. Andy Buckley and George Dear decided to get their friends together to help raise funds for the PPBF’s vital Compassionate Housing.
Scafell Pike is Britain’s highest mountain and is situated in the beautiful Lake District and forms part of the inactive Scaffels volcano.
Andy and George, along with Egita Strauta, David Smith, Laura Pearson and Ryan Green tackled the exhausting 978m elevation and rough terrain together. On the way up they were rewarded with magnificent views. At the summit they were in cloudy mist. Astonishingly they reached the peak and back in 6 hours and 39 minutes. “It was amazing! Such a great achievement. I’m so proud of everyone;” said an overjoyed Andy.
The team would be so grateful if you would consider sponsoring them for their efforts and help the PPBF with their vital work.
Here’s a video of their challenge. Thank you to Dannii Priaulx for putting it together:
Last year their friend in Guernsey needed to stay in Aggie’s Burrow whilst their poorly little one was being treated at Southampton Hospital. This home-from-home flat is only 100 steps away from the hospital entrance, giving peace of mind that the family are only a few minutes away from their child any time of the day or night. This flat, along with our other flat Isaac’s Pad, are available free of charge to Bailiwick of Guernsey families of premature babies, or critically ill children, in Southampton Hospital. The charity is not funded by the government and relies on donations and grants from kind people and companies. Please click this link to donate if you can:
