Rural Solutions team reached new heights in the National Three Peaks Challenge raising more than £2,000 for local cause, Wil’s Wishes, completing the challenge in 23 hours and 34 minutes.

On 7-8th July 2018 in the unusually warm conditions, the team set off from Skipton to climb the three highest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland.

A total ascent of over 10,000ft. Ben Nevis (1345m/ 4413ft), Scafell Pike (978m/ 3209ft), Snowdon (1085m/ 3560ft), and nearly 1,000 miles of driving.

Managing director, William Fry said “The support and enthusiasm from the team at Rural Solutions has been wonderful and we’ve had a lot of fun taking part. I hope the blisters and sore legs have recovered!

The Wil’s Wishes organisation from Lancashire is a charity set up in memory of Wil Handford by his family, to raise awareness of bowel cancer and help those affected by terminal illness. The charity have done amazing work with local schools and have made a huge difference to the lives of people they have helped. This inspiring cause is close to a number of colleagues who knew Wil, who lost his battle with the disease in 2015 at just 24.
