Cheltenham Rotaract's Three Peaks Challenge

Five members of Cheltenham Rotaract successfully completed a Three Peaks Challenge in 21 hours 54 minutes 26 seconds after six months training.

Starting at 1800hrs, Thursday 29 June 2000, five members of Cheltenham Rotaract undertook the challenge of their lives. The task was to walk up and down, and travel between, the three highest peaks in mainland UK - BEN NEVIS, SCAFELL PIKE and SNOWDON in less than 24 hours. The team of Juliet Smith, Andrew Yendole, Tom Carver, Sarah Stevens (Club President) and James Black (incoming Club President) completed the challenge in a time that even they didn't expect. The team was ably supported by two Rotarians from Cheltenham North Rotary Club who acted as the team's drivers, and expressed the walkers between the peaks.

The Club is grateful for the sponsorship of Westbury Homes which funded all the petrol costs involved in the Challenge. The proceeds of 2500 from this fundraising challenge are to be donated to the National Meningitis Trust and the Club's 2000 charity, Salter's Hill.
