On one of the wettest weekends this Summer, Home-Start Camden supporter Joe Paley climbed the highest mountains in the UK in aid of Home-Start Camden. And the best of it is that Joe and his work colleagues did the Three Peaks Challenge in 23 hours 5 minutes!
Starting first thing Saturday morning 25th July, the team scaled Scotland’s Ben Nevis then drove south to the Lake District to tackle Scarfell Pike, England’s highest peak before a final drive into Wales to reach Snowdon and get back down within the 24 hour Three Peak Challenge deadline. With little sleep and eating on the move, Joe said, ” It was such hard work and I’m still aching over three days later! It was an amazing challenge and we really had to keep going to stay on time. Luckily it rained mostly when we were in the van. The worst of it was the lack of sleep and walking down in the dark when we were coming down from Scarfell. But it was well worth it to raise money for Home-Start Camden’s work with families under pressure and I’m really happy its over and that I managed the full challenge.”
