Six local hikers raise over £2,000 for BLG Mind

We are blown away by the achievement of Jon Doughty and his team of hikers from MSK who undertook The Three Peaks Challenge this month, raising a remarkable £2,636 for BLG Mind.

This is not a challenge for the fainthearted. The team set out at 4am and hiked the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within a 28 hour period.

It’s not just a physically and mentally gruelling challenge to hike these 3 peaks, but to do so without sleep and ensuring the transport logistics work out requires considerable training.

Yet despite some extreme heat and aching muscles, the MSK team of 6 were not deterred and summitted Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 28 hrs.

The MSK Team commented, “What an amazing achievement and effort. The stunning views pushed us to our limits, but we all made it! Huge thanks to all those who have supported us and helped to make this happen”
