14 Explorer Scouts and 6 Leaders, split into 3 teams, completed the 3 Peaks Challenge reaching the summits of the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales climbing over 10,000ft and walking 20 miles all under 24 hours. Supported by leaders and parents they were competing against adult teams from the emergency services who were all mightily impressed with the scouts effort! The group have currently raised over £2,500 for Cancer research and Parkinsons.
