As a group of friends, we love the outdoors. From growing up, all of us within High Wycombe, we’ve spent days on end in the woods, fields or anywhere we can enjoy some form of outdoor adventures. We’ve explored a vast portion of our local county and we still collectively enjoy a good hike or bike ride. This is why we have also chosen to try and raise some money for Rewilding Britain, so that we can still enjoy all the wonders of the British outdoors for many years to come.
Our most recent ventures being walking and kayaking around some of the southwest coast of Wales, Pembrokeshire. This brought to light our common interest to explore some of Snowdon and with our previous brief explorations of Aberfeldy, Scotland had developed into thoughts on taking on the Three Peaks.
We are all very keen for the challenge but will also be taking this as time away from typical lifestyle (believe it or not ‘a holiday’) which is why we decided to take a week out for the entire trip. This also gives us more time to pick litter on any routes we walk and spread wild flower seed where we can.
Sam highlights: “I have always been interested in the outdoors, not always walking as my mum will easily let you know! Over the years though I have enjoyed walking and hiking with friends to a variety of places all over the UK and Europe, so I’m very excited to spend a week doing it.”
Joe adds: “I personally have experience in climbing mountains in Lanzarote and Italy but never anything to this level, it will be a tough challenge but I have no doubt in our abilities to achieve it.”
The climbing team in full is: Sam Winfield, Joe Woodhouse, Rory Hilton, Katie Grimsdell, Zain Salim, Andrew Eckheart and Conor Hilton.
