Shout-out for the Roache Family


Neil Roache (brother of Graeme) successfully completed the Three Peaks Challenge in 23hrs 5 mins and has raised £1508 plus £195 Gift Aid for BBSUK. He began the challenge at 4pm on 8th July at Snowden finishing at 3.05pm on 9th July at Ben Nevis. Robert, his dad was his driver and safety man on the ground. Snowden (weather was dismal), Scafell Pike was done in darkness!

Weather in Scotland for Ben Nevis was dry and sunny. Graeme, his mum Margaret and Mirin the dog, met the guys in Fort William before Neil did his last climb on Ben Nevis. This was a huge personal challenge for Neil and we are absolutely thrilled he raised much-needed funds for BBS UK at the same time. WELL DONE AND THANK YOU!
