Meisterwalkers Climb Every Mountain
Julie Andrews wasn't in sight, nor was Christopher Plummer, but a group of six Meisterwalkers from WNO recently completed the famed Three Peaks Challenge that involves climbing the three highest peaks in Wales, Scotland and England within a twenty-four hour period.
Drawn from various sections of the company Georgina Govier, Sarah Teagle, Ian Douglas, Donald Clist, Andy Cookson, Phil Boughton aided by their logistical team John Newberry and Rocky (Adriaaaane! – sorry, I couldn't resist), of Pegasus Coach Agency Ltd, completed their challenge within the twenty-four hour limit.
The aim of the challenge was to collect £1600 in donations to help the charity Tenovus reach their target of £100,000...Money raised will go towards their Mobile Chemotherapy Unit that is travelling around South and West Wales delivering chemotherapy to people and offering support services.
Well, they've gone and raised the £1600 and are now looking to see if they can get to £2500. You can help the Meisterwalkers reach their target by making a donation through their page at Just Giving, where you can see photos and read more about their gruelling twenty-four hours – including the scary fact that they all headed straight back in time for this afternoon's dress rehearsal of Meistersinger.
