Britannia Leatherbarrows tackles the three peaks

Apr 21, 2015
The chaps from Britannia Leatherbarrows will be tackling the Three Peaks Challenge this month, all in the name of charity.

The team will be climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, the three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales, and aim to complete the whole thing, including the driving part, within 24-hours. All money raised will go to Action Medical Research. The six man team will comprise: Robert Dance, Richard Fisher, Lewis Mills, Paul Messer, Tom Collins and Andy Pittwood.

Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales) are difficult climbs. This is not an event for the faint of heart.  The course is guided by qualified mountain leaders, but the participants still need to be in good physical shape.

The research work Action Medical Research has performed over the years has affected almost everyone who lives in the UK. It is through its research that the first polio vaccines and the rubella vaccine were created for those in the UK; another important breakthrough was ultrasound for pregnancy. These are among just a few of the medical success stories that have been created by Action Medical Research.
