  The Lord Mayor's Appeal 3 Peaks Challenge

3 Peaks Challenge The Lord Mayor's Appeal, brings people together to share skills, creativity and learning to build a fairer world. The initiative teamed up with VSO and Global Challenge UK (GCUK) to organize a Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours.

Thirty two teams entered in order to raise money for:

3 Peaks Challenge
  • VSO, an International Development charity that works through volunteers
  • The Mansion House Scholarship Scheme, which supports overseas students for training and work experience in the United Kingdom's financial services industry
  • The Guild of Educators which develops individuals as educators by means of grants, awards and medals
  • King Edwards School, Witley, who offer a range of scholarships and bursaries to help those with particular academic, artistic or musical abilities as well as others who are specifically in need of boarding education.

GCUK provided all of the communications support, issuing VHF radios to each team. The safety of each team member was further ensured by GCUK's event management, including its system of installing mountain leaders along the entirety of the routes.

"Despite the absolutely appalling weather it really was a fantastic weekend and the feedback we've had from the teams has been brilliant"
