The last weekend of July was a particularly active one for 9 members of our Therapies Team who undertook to climb the 3 highest peaks in the UK in 23 hours and 32 minutes!
Initially the group wanted to undertake the challenge to push themselves and stay active after the past difficult year. As the training progressed however, they felt that they also wanted to do something to benefit the hospital and so they set up a JustGiving Page and absolutely smashed their original target by raising £830 so far for LHCH Charity.
Aaron Thomas, one of those taking part said: “The whole weekend was a great success. The weather was lovely for the first two climbs not too warm or too cold but it was really hot during the Ben Nevis climb so it was a real challenge. We were all quite proud of ourselves that we managed to push through and get to the top.”
We can’t thank Aaron, Hannah, Laura, Pat, Neil, Andy, Ben, Libby and Tony for all their hard work and effort in raising such an amazing amount for our work.
