CENTRAL LONDON GROUP
PLEASE JOIN US TO RAISE FUNDS FOR SYRIA!
Minimum of 7 and maximum 25 participants – are you up for it?
Over 1.6 million people have fled from the horrific violence in Syria, half of them children. Children have been displaced, lost homes and schools, struggled to get clean water, food and warmth. Some children have been victims of violence; beaten, shot at and physically and sexually abused. UNICEF is working on the ground in Syria and neighboring countries to provide clean water, clothing and medical care for children and urgently need more donations to do the work. This 3 Peaks Challenge is about raising funds for UNICEF to help the children in Syria.
The 3 Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the 3 highest peaks in the Lake District in ONE day! It includes the Skiddaw, the Scafell Pike (also the highest peak in England) and the Helvellyn. Total walking distance: 31Km, height gain: 2224m and we aim to do it in 12 hours (including transport). The Lake District is one of the most stunning surroundings in England with beautiful hilltops, misty mountains and glittering lakes…
