Kirsty Rhodes and 12 friends completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge on 2nd September 2017 in memory of her Grandma Clare Barritt raising £1,530 in aid of Pendleside Hospice.
The group completed all three peaks in just over 12 hours, taking on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, which form part of the Pennine range and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
“Our target was £1,000 so we are all really chuffed to have exceeded it! We did this event in memory of my Grandma Clare who sadly passed away in March 2017 at the Hospice. Me and my family were really happy with the care provided and it prompted me to organise this event to support the vital work that Pendleside does in our community. Hopefully our fundraising will prompt other members of the public to raise money too”.
