3 Peaks, 7 tutors, 24 hours

Date: 29/06/2011

Sport and Physical Recreation tutors from Dearne Valley College (DVC) have completed the UK’s ultimate challenge.


Over the course of 24 hours, a team of seven tutors with two drivers from the Wath based college climbed the three highest peaks in Britain travelling over 475 miles.

The team climbed Ben Nevis at 1344m, Scarfell Pike at 978m and finally Snowdon at 1085m all within 24 hours.

The team endured this incredible journey and have risen over £1500 for the special care baby units at the Rotherham and Barnsley Hospitals.

A number of the team who completed the challenge have recently had children and wanted to recognise the work the baby units do by raising as much money as possible for the hospitals in question.

Money is still coming in for this incredible achievement and any donations can be dropped off at the Manvers Campus reception and will be gratefully accepted and added to the overall amount raised.

Mick Blyth, Team Member commented:

“We had a fantastic time. It was difficult at times but also enjoyable and ultimately we have raised a significant amount of money for two worthy charities. We would like to thank everyone who sponsored and supported us along the way. We are open to suggestions and looking forward to our next challenge”.

Dearne Valley College are now accepting applications for many courses starting September 2011.
