Nigel’s friend and colleague Ian Moffat, Community Safety Support Officer at Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters in Cramlington aided by Alan Middleton and a group of young people from the from the Princes Trust decided to climb the combined height of the three peaks the highest mountains of Scotland, England and Wales (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in a day. The combined height of the three mountains is 3,407m!
The event took place at Pegswood Community Fire Station on Wednesday 2nd April 2014. The team pitched a ladder to the first floor of the drill tower and to complete the challenge each member of the group had to climb up the ladder and into the building and descend the internal ladders 48 times, 576 times in total. They had music playing and refreshments at hand to keep everyone motivated.
Everyone in the team put in 100% and they were able to complete the challenge in under 4 hours. The grand total raised by Pegswood Team 3 was a tremendous £400. The money will be put to good use providing services for people affected by MS. On behalf Of everyone at MSRRF a huge thank you to everyone involved for your kind support.
