Local mums to take on three peaks challenge

A group of seven local ladies will scale the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales in under 24 hours this weekend, all in the name of charity.

Maxine Lace, Tessa Burrow and Chido Maunze, who all work in the finance industry, alongside graphic designer Glesni Corney, teacher Helen Mason, health care worker Amanda Munro and fundraiser at the Children’s Centre Jane Howland, will take on the National Three Peaks Challenge.

Over the weekend, the group will walk 26 miles, drive 462 miles and ascent more than 10,000 feet on Scafell Pike in England, Snowdon in Wales and Ben Nevis in Scotland in less than 24 hours.

 In preparation for the challenge, they have been hiking every hill they can find on the Isle of Man.

The women have chosen to complete this challenge to raise funds for the Children’s Centre.
