Jay and the Peaky Climbers' mountainous fundraising efforts
Remember Jay and his band of ‘Peaky Climbers’? He recently took park in an incredible challenge scaling the three largest peaks in the UK in order to raise funds for us and four other charities close to his heart.
We’re delighted to announce that Jay has completely smashed his initial target of £10,000! In fact, his current total stands at just over £21,000; more than double his initial goal!
Together with a group of his family and friends, who have been absolutely amazing in supporting him all the way, Jay conquered all three of the peaks. Just completing one is a fantastic accomplishment! Add in the fact that Jay is celebrating the big 50 this year. 2018 is looking like it’s going to be one to remember for some time!
The Three Peaks Challenge was especially important for Jay as he was also fundraising in honour of his mother who passed away from dementia and cancer last year. Jay’s dedication will go a long way to helping other families affected by these conditions, and we’re honoured to have supported him in his amazing efforts.
A huge well done to Jay and the rest of the Peaky Climbers. We think you’ve earned a rest now though! You can still show them your support by donating to Jay’s Virgin Giving page.
