Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge Sponsored Walk

17th July 2019

Join us on Saturday 14th September 2019 as we take on the Yorkshire three peaks and raise vital funds to tackle food poverty with the local Leeds North & West Foodbank.

The challenge is a 24 mile walk over the three largest peaks in the Yorkshire (Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) taking in the breath-taking views of The Yorkshire Dales and The Ribblehead Viaduct.

Sign up by buying a ticket to walk with us. The ticket price includes a professional mountain guide to guide us through the day and a support vehicle which will meet us with light refreshments, so you dont need to carry your supplies with you. They’ll have a stash of jelly babies to keep us all going!

Once signed up you’re free to raise your own sponsorship, either using a traditional form or by creating a Give as You Live page and selecting Leeds North and West Foodbank as your chosen charity (https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/create) – we ask all participants to target a minimum fundraise of £50.

The funds raised will support Leeds North and West Foodbank (“Leeds NWFB”), a network of 9 foodbanks in the Leeds area which provide much needed support to families in crisis in the fight to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

People can find themselves in a food crisis for many reasons: losing their job, a relationship breakdown or a death in the family can all lead to situations where a family can struggle to put food on the table.

Leeds NWFB is a member of the Trussell Trust, a national network of over 428 foodbanks, working to tackle hunger and poverty in our local communities and across the UK. In 2018/19, The Foodbank Network provided 1,583,668 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, 577,618 went to children.

All participants will also get a 15% off voucher for Cotswold Outdoors.

Visit our Eventbrite page here to register.  If you are unable to participate but would like to support the event then feel free buy a “Donate” ticket from the Ticket options above or alternatively visit the Leeds North and West Foodbank Give as You Live page at (https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/charity/leedsnorthandwestfoodbank).

Thank you for your support and we hope you can join us on this worthwhile, challenging and enjoyable day!
