Well, there’s more to my story than just the Three Peaks Challenge!

By taking on this challenge my first and most important goal was to raise money for charity, and this I have achieved. The money I have raised has been more than I ever dreamed of.

My Bronze Award was kindly presented by World Championship and Olympic rower Andrej Hrabar, and also the Lord Mayor of Exeter.
Andrej delivered a really great speech and offered a brief insight into all aspects of being an Olympic athlete.
A really enjoyable evening, thank you to all the organisers, and of course my D of E trainers.

Well what can I say, I have had a truly amazing few days, here is a brief overview of what I have done: Firstly, my main goal was to raise as much money as possible for my chosen charities and so I decided to […]
Wow…… what a weekend I have just had, read on and I’ll tell you all about it.
On Saturday I went fundraising in Exeter City Centre, and yet again the people of Exeter have been so generous and made me so proud. We raised over £400 on the day and I am so ecstatic because I have hit a new high in my fundraising total…..I have now raised over £4000….amazing!!!
On Sunday I achieved my first successful Three Peaks Challenge. Not my National Youngest Solo Three Peaks Challenge….that is coming VERY VERY soon, but this Successful Three Peaks Challenge was the Somerset Three Peaks, so the highest peaks of Somerset.
