Trio raising money for local charities with Three Peaks Challenge

Torbay Weekly

A trio of Torbay fundraisers are set to take on The Three Peaks Challenge unsupported in 24 hours tomorrow (Friday, September 24).

Lana Taylor, Jacob Bolton and Nicole Allder will scale the tallest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales - Scarfell Pike, Ben Nevis and Snowdon.

This will be unsupported - driving themselves and walking the routes independently.

Money raised will be split equally between three local charities - Rock 2 Recovery, Rowcroft Hospice, Breakthrough Transformation Trust.

Rock 2 Recovery provide veterans and their families a multitude of support on PTSD and stress.

They offer online support, workshops and coaching to enable those affected by military life to have a more positive future.

Civil servant Nicole said: “Having had many family members serve in the navy, army and specifically the SAS to know that this charity helps those affected by PTSD means a lot.”

The Breakthrough Transformation Trust provides high quality care and education for children and young people who face life challenges.

Lana, a young person’s core worker, said: “I am lucky enough to work at the trust with the caring staff and wonderful students and I cannot put into words how incredible this charity is.”

Rowcroft Hospice provides palliative care services for people and their families with progressive life-limiting illnesses.

Jake, a RAF communications technician, said: “Rowcroft Hospice has truly helped me and my family in times of need, we have seen first hand the outstanding care they provide.”

Lana said: “We love a challenge and the opportunity to help raise money for incredible charities.

"We chose these local charities because we all have a connection to them and we have seen first hand the amazing services they provide. We would love to give back to them.

"The fundraising target was £300 but we have just reached £650. Any donations are hugely appreciated.”
