EIGHT people from volunteering group ‘the Duckpond’ undertook one of the UK’s hardest challenges – three peaks in 24 hours, helping raise funds for Warrington Disability Partnership.
Starting at Ben Nevis at midday the lads climbed 11,178 ft. and walked 78,000 steps to complete the challenge.
The challenge was undertaken by Anthony Bennett, Kieron Bennett, Thomas Leach, Andy Leach, Chris Roberts, LC Cheungers, Lees Johnson and Simon Wright and the team were supported by Matt Dempsey from MD Media and Central Self Drive Warrington.
Along their journey the duckpond team were met with multiple challenges; illness and injury, a midnight ascent of Scafell Pike, severe muscle cramps and even the odd Cumbrian sheep trying to stop them in their tracks. Six out of the 8 walkers completed the challenge with 8 minutes to spare and so far the team have raised £962 for Warrington Disability Partnership.
The three peaks challenge forms part of the Duckpond’s ‘five years face your fears’ celebrations – where the team are holding a series of unique events throughout 2019 that take people out of their comfort zone and have some fun along the way.
Their next event is ‘SEXY BINGO’ which is being held at Warrington Town Football Club on Saturday 9th November.
For the uninitiated, Sexy bingo is hosted by male model ‘Joel Hicks’ and bingo winners can opt for a prize or ask the caller to remove an item of clothing. The evening is non-explicit and a fun way to get involved and help raise funds for Warrington Disability Partnership.
