Colour Dynamics complete the Three Peaks Challenge!

Stuart, Luke and Trina from the Colour Dynamics’ team embarked on the National Three Peaks Challenge earlier this year in support of Lakelands Hospice.

Lakelands Hospice is an independent charity committed to delivering specialist palliative support for people with cancer, heart failure and other life limiting illnesses.

Lakelands receives NO statutory NHS or Government funding and relies on the support and generosity from the people of Corby borough to provide award winning levels of care into the community.

The Challenge:

Starting in Corby on Friday September 6th, the team travelled around 1,000 miles to Scotland, Northern England and Wales.

First up was Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, at 1,344 meters high, and the longest walk. Starting at around 4pm on Friday, the team took 4 hours to reach the summit and another 2 hours to get back down.

After some delay getting to Scafell Pike – The highest peak in England at 978 meters was started at 9.30am Saturday.

In lovely sunny conditions, the climb was completed in under 2 hours, with the descent taking 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Last up was Snowdon – the Welsh giant at 1,085 meters tall. With a start time of 8pm and dusk fast approaching it proved to be a difficult, dark and cold ascent lasting over 3.5 hours.

An equally challenging hike back to the warmth of the Lakelands minibus ensued into the early hours of Sunday morning to complete the challenge.

Over £10,000 was raised for Lakelands Hospice by the entire group, with the Colour Dynamics participants beating their target by reaching a total of £1,275.00.
