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.

DONATE: NATIONAL THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE

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.
