Charity Walk

Charity Walk

We are inviting students to join us to do the Yorkshire Three Peaks walk on Saturday 31st August followed by a well earned local drink.

When I did my charity bike ride in November 2012 I met a very lovely man called Kimthol Yoeun. He was our guide whilst in Cambodia and he was also a teacher.  Him and his wife Sorphorn established a ‘not for profit charity project’ called Smile of Ankor Children’s Village http://angkorcharity.com/. I would like to raise some money to help this project as even a small amount goes such a long way over there; 80 cents provides a child with flipflops for school some children do not have any shoes, $3.50 provides a full school uniform.   

The project helps impoverished villages and communities through providing education and schools for the children. The activities undertaken by Sorphorn and Kim in their work benefit children, families and their communities in very real and direct ways. The funding supplies things like school uniforms, shoes, bicycles, books, pens, school bags, ground water wells, bathrooms, school kitchens, benches, first aid kits, hygiene packs, daily healthy food and keeping their environment clean.

You don’t have to do the walk for charity, I know trying to get sponsorship can be very time consuming and offputting sooooo why not just make a small donation yourself and join us!!  Anyone interested please contact me at trix@wickercamp.co.uk 07743596420.

It’s a beautiful area and it will be quite challenging at times but that’s part of the fun!! We are in good hands with Sam Badger our resident walking guide who says it should take us fine physical specimens about 12 hours!!! so it’ll be an early 7am start. So here’s some info and a lovely picture to entice you.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk is a very demanding but rewarding walk, which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent (694 metres – 2,276 feet), Whernside (736 metres – 2,415 feet) and Ingleborough (723 metres  2,372 feet) all in one circular route. There is no set starting point, but the vast majority of walkers start at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, taking in summits in the order above.

Looking up at Pen-y-ghent

The walk is 24.5 miles (39.2km) long and takes in over 5,000 feet (1,600 metres) of climbing. The walking is over a variety of terrains, and the paths and signage has been much improved over recent years.
