3 Peaks Challenge 2018

Anderton Concrete are proud to be supporting Macmillan Cancer Trust by attempting to complete the National Three Peaks Challenge on 2nd June 2018.

The challenge involves climbing Ben Nevis (1345m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Mount Snowden (1085m) in the space of 24 hours. Total distance is 26 miles. We have gathered a team of 10 people who will take part in the challenge, none of whom have any previous hiking experience! It's pretty hard, although the experience tends to vary greatly between different people. Sleep deprivation plays a part here, affecting some people more than others, particularly with awkward sleeping conditions.

Did you know that 38% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point,. Macmillan will be there for all of these people and there families, every step of the way. All their funding comes from donations. Did you know it costs £1000 to fund a Macmillan nurse for one week and end of life care costs £10,000.

Our challenge is to raise £20,000 and any donation would be extremely welcome and appreciated.
