three highest peaks
On 29 September you can join Dorset’s disability charity, Diverse Abilities, and take on this unique opportunity to trek the three highest peaks in Dorset during a 12-hour hike across the Dorset hills.
Participants will trek 26 miles across the Wessex Ridgeway and to the peaks of Lewesdon Hill, Pilsdon Pen and Bulbarrow Hill. These are the three highest peaks in Dorset and within one day you will be ascending a combined height of 1,350 metres – higher than Ben Nevis.
Lauren McCullough, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said of the Three Peaks Challenge, “This is definitely a unique trekking experience and a great opportunity for those who enjoy walking, or just love spectacular views. This is a perfect challenge for those wanting to step out of their comfort zone and set themselves a target for 2018. Not only will you have a fantastic experience, but you will also be raising vital funds for Dorset’s disability charity.”
To take part in the Dorset Three Peaks event, an entry fee of £35 applies and a minimum fundraising target of £265 is requested. If you book your place before 1 April you can receive a £5 discount.
Tom, aged 35, who lives in Lulworth, took part in the trek last year and said, “It was such a great experience walking with a group of people passionate about supporting Diverse Abilities. The scenery was stunning and the trek leaders were brilliant. It was tougher than I expected, but well worth it.”
Diverse Abilities say your fundraising could achieve the daily cost to run the advice service to provide guidance and support, specialist toys for children with disabilities, a day’s vital medical supplies for the children at the charity’s specialist school, and much more.
