Teachers Take on Three Peaks Challenge

Five Collingwood teachers to take on the Three Peaks Challenge

Five members of Collingwood staff are going to take on the Three Peaks Challenge this month (Saturday 25 May and Sunday 26 May). This involves climbing the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours. Miss Evans, Miss Griffiths, Mr Magness, Mr McKay and Mr Metcalfe will start the challenge by climbing Ben Nevis, then working down to Scafell Pike and finishing with Snowdon. 

We will be setting off from Camberley at 5.00am beginning our ascent of Ben Nevis at 5.00pm. We hope to climb Ben Nevis in 5 hours before driving a further 6 hours to get to Scafell Pike and climbing the second mountain in 4 hours. Exhausted, we will travel to Wales and ascend our final peak, Snowdon, in 4 hours. The challenge ends at 5.00pm on Sunday, where we will have climbed all three peaks in under 24 hours.

By completing this challenge the teachers are hoping to raise money for two chosen charities. Firstly Cancer Research, a charity researching into over 200 types of cancer. Secondly half of the money donated will help fund the Collingwood College Borneo Trip. This trip is a once in a life time opportunity whereby students will be involved in a community project, building a water point for a local village as well as climbing Mount Kinabalu. Students rely on fundraising and donations to go on the expedition this summer.
