My story

Walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for Leeds N&W Foodbank. This is an almighty hike of 24 miles, traversing three significantly large peaks over the course of a 12 hour day.

100% of every donation goes directly to the Trussell Trust Leeds North and West Foodbank. The charity provides emergency food packages and valuable signposting services to people who need immediate help in times of crisis, and currently operates 9 centres throughout NW Leeds.

There are many people within our local communities who are living way below the poverty line and who, due to various circumstances, do not have enough money to buy food or toiletries.

The demographic of clients needing support at the foodbank ranges from families with children, to single men and women; from young people to the elderly. The foodbank is a safe space where kindness, cups of tea, signposting to support services and access to food parcels all converge. For those who need it, this support may be all they have to get through the week.

This is an organised charity hike that takes place on September 14th from 7am - 7pm. It starts from Horton-In-Ribblesdale and traverses Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, which are together known as the 'Yorkshire Three Peaks'.

Please give what you can and please share this page with friends.

Many thanks,

Matt

Challenge completed! It was all good on the day, nice group and we set a good pace to finish in just over 12 hours. We got perfect walking weather too, clear and sunny but not too hot. Natural endorphins carried me through the last section and later I had to restore the approximately 8,000 calories burned on the walk.

Thanks for all your donations. You have helped to raise over £250 for the Leeds N&W Foodbank, and collectively between the group over £2,200 has so far been raised.

I'm still taking donations through this page for the next week or two, so please feel free to add to the pot if you can.

Many thanks,

Thanks for all your donations so far. We have reached 60%+ of the target amount. The walk takes place this Saturday, so any further donations would be greatly appreciated. So far, my training consists of pizzas and burgers, but a few warm up hikes are on the cards this week.
