Four Peaks Challenge




Scafell Pike

Slieve Donard

Ben Nevis

Every Step Supports Homelessness

The Four Peaks Challenge involves scaling the highest peak of each of the

four nations, finishing at the UK's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis.


Like many of us, George and John are troubled by the increase in homelessness that we are seeing here in Scotland.  They have decided to raise money for Shelter Scotland as George strives to complete the Four Peaks Challenge with support from John the entire way through, and with more Scotland in Union supporters joining along the way.  


Shelter Scotland are a fantastic charity, working every day to tackle this issue by directly advising those impacted and campaigning to end homelessness.

This dedicated effort deserves your support - you can sponsor the challenge here.


A big thank you from George and John for all your donations and encouragement... it helps every step of the way! 

Our initial target of £500 has been smashed!
