VIDEO: Yorkshire Cricket take on Three Peaks Challenge
Yorkshire Cricket have completed a mammoth challenge to raise funds to support charity work in the community and a hospice in Yorkshire.
A team from across Yorkshire Cricket took on the National Three Peaks Challenge in aid of the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation and Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.
The National Three Peaks Challenge involved climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon – and took around 28 hours for the team to complete.
The total walking distance was 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3,064 metres (10,052ft) – twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
The big event, which started on Friday, 2 September, was taken on to raise as much money as possible for the vital projects and programmes carried out by Yorkshire Cricket Foundation – the official charity and community arm of Yorkshire Cricket.
And Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope, near Keighley. As well as expert palliative care, the organisation supports people with life-limiting conditions, and their families. They work across Airedale, Wharfedale, Craven, and North Bradford.
This is a charity close to the heart of the Foundation team as they have been helping and supporting a close colleague and their family.
