In the early hours of the morning on 24 June an intrepid team consisting of Seagulls parents and friends will depart Dorset destined for Bonnie Scotland to undertake the highly respected 3 Peaks Mountain Challenge 2015. The team consisting of 18 climbers and four drivers will embark on a gruelling expedition, which will see them climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales consecutively within 24 hours. Overall, the team will cover a distance of 20 miles on foot, ascending and descending at total of just over 11,000 feet and 500 miles by road between the three mountains; this is no event for the faint hearted.
The aim of the Club is to raise £10,000 with money raised being put towards purchasing new starting blocks for the Club. A very worthy resource indeed.
The Seagulls Team are entering the event under the auspices of the Fire Services and are pleased to confirm that the event is their 44th Challenge to date. The intrepid Seagulls climbers are Glenn Bailey, Susie Donaldson, Wayne Ellis, Michelle Gormley, Zoe MacIntosh, Lee Mulholland, Theresa Oakley, Emma Peckham,Richard Porter, Chandy Rance, Kristina Razey, Louise Sharp, Nigel Sharp, Becky Ward, Tristan Ward, Pam Webb, Chris Williams, Jacqui Williams, along with the invaluable services of Kev Devereux and Nick Razey as drivers.
