Staff conquering the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Following a number of practise walks, this staff challenge team were determined to complete this epic 24-mile trek, and sometimes steep hike within the recommended 12 hours…and indeed they accomplished this!

Not to be outdone, pupils then completed their seven-mile sponsored walk through the fields of the Ribble Valley at an extremely speedy pace, despite the blackening clouds and rain.

A school spokesman said: "The staff challenge team and all of the pupils who participated in these walks have showed lots of determination and strength in order to raise funds for the following charities: Rainbow Trust, Pendle Dogs in Need, Teenage Cancer Trust, East Lancashire Hospice and Lancashire Minds. Thank you to everyone who has supported both staff and pupils and for any kind donations received."
