Challenge 6 complete!

21st September 2017

On the last weekend of August, I travelled to Scotland with a team of other supporters to take on the 3 Peaks Challenge as part of Matt’s Colossal 10. 

After a late night we were up early to tackle the challenge starting with Ben Nevis, then Scafell Pike and finally, Snowdon. No sleep or hotels in between mountains, just a minibus and lots of caffeine. 

Although we did not complete the challenge within the 24 hours we had hoped, the challenge was tough and conditions on Scafell were extremely poor, and everyone completed the trek in one piece, despite lots of aches and pains. 

Here is a roundup of the 3 Peaks Challenge.

So that leaves four challenges left and over the weekend on 22nd - 24th September I will be taking on my 170 mile cycling challenge between all of Weldmar’s charity shops. 

We will be departing the hospice at 9.15am on Friday 22nd and aim to be back at the hospice by 4.00pm on Sunday 24th September. 

Do come and support if you possibly can, or why not join our support stations at each charity shop throughout the challenge. Here are the estimated arrival times below: 


  • Bridport South Street Shop, DT6 3NQ - Between 11.50am-12.10am
  • Lyme Regis Shop, Broad Street, DT7 3QE - Between 1.10pm – 1.30pm
