Four Peaks Challenge: Update

On Monday George Wilkinson and John Copeland picked up their hired campervan and headed south to Chester, where they stayed overnight before tackling Mt. Snowdon on Tuesday.


Before the Challenge had even begun they had smashed their target of £500 for Shelter Scotland, which is a great achievement! They are now hoping to double the their target, you can help by visiting their JustGiving page here. At the time of posting this blog they have raised £640.


On Tuesday the first stage of the challenge, Mt. Snowdon in Wales, was completed.

After the completion of the Welsh leg of the challenge, they headed for the Lake District to rest and prepare for Scafell Pike on Wednesday, which is the second stage of the challenge where they will be joined by our Inverclyde organiser, George Dyer.

After Scafell Pike was completed they were back on the road heading to catch the ferry across the Irish sea for the third leg (Slieve Donard). At this stage of the journey they will be joined by Gail Addis, a very active Scotland in Union volunteer and organiser.

After Slieve Donard it's back to the ferry (and then car) then up north towards Fort William to prepare for the final stage, Ben Nevis - the highest peak in the UK. At this stage they will be joined by two of Scotland in Union's staff members.
