Three Peaks Challenge
A small team of staff from St Clare’s set themselves a towering challenge and embarked on the gruelling Three Peaks hoping to raise at least £500 for The Global Fund for Children UK Trust.
The four-strong team left Porthcawl in 26 degrees of sunshine and drove straight up to Yorkshire and camped overnight before scaling Scafell Pike. The team then drove to Scotland, camping again before tackling Ben Nevis where it was -2 degrees and thick mist! Their final challenge was to summit Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.
Kathy Phillips who organised the punishing challenge said “We wanted to raise as much money as we could for this worthwhile cause and we hope that the money raised will make a real difference to children on the edges of society”.
St Clare’s School has built a fantastic reputation for its charity fundraising. Headmaster, Simon Antwis at St Clare’s School said: “Every year we are overwhelmed by the way in which our staff dedicate themselves to fundraising and we try to support them in any we can. We’re immensely proud of their achievement.”
