Help Midlands Air Ambulance Charity Reach the Summit

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is looking for peaky volunteers to take on an uphill challenge and raise money for a worthwhile charity.

 The charity has organised a Three Peaks Challenge which will see intrepid entrants climb the UK’s highest mountains – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in just 24 hours. 

Taking place on Friday 8th August, you, along with friends or colleagues will work as a team scaling a total of 3,500m, taking in some breath-taking views, whilst helping Midlands Air Ambulance Charity raise funds vitally important for saving lives. 

Registration costs only £100 with a sponsorship target of £500 per person. Places for this exhilarating challenge are limited, so budding hikers looking to support the charity are being encouraged to sign up now and avoid disappointment. 

Michelle McCracken, events manager at Midlands Air Ambulance, said: “Fundraising events like this are vitally important in our effort to raise money to continue to operate the Midland Air Ambulance service. 

“I’d like to invite individuals and groups who are up to the challenge of conquering the Three Peaks in 24 hours to register their interest and help us save lives within our region.” 

The charity, which has flown over 40,000 air ambulance missions, receives no Government or National Lottery funding and relies solely on donations from individuals or local businesses, to raise the £6.5 million it needs each year to stay in operation. 

Responding to on average 2,000 missions each year, the service covers six counties across the Midlands, including Staffordshire, Shropshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire,
