Preparing for the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

Quinton Roberts, a patient at our Yate clinic, recently took part in the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge to help raise funds for St Peters Hospice. Ian Orr, Quinton's chiropractor, is a qualified adventure training instructor and was proud to sponsor and support Quinton as he prepared for the challenge. 

The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge takes in the three highest peaks of Wales: Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wales, and Pen y Fan in the South. It includes a total walking distance of 17 miles (27.4km) and an ascent of around 1500 metres (4920ft), which is usually completed in less than 24-hours.

Quinton was one of a team from Jeff Way Electrical Services that completed the challenge. He said; “We all just want to say a massive thank you for supporting us in our endeavours to raise money for St Peters hospice. The event was a big success and whilst one or two of us had a few wobbles, as a team we all finished together just inside our target 13 hours. With your help we have so far managed to raise over £3,000.00. This will go a long way to helping St Peters Hospice provide the care that they do so well.” 

Ian is now talking about organising a challenge for Willow to undertake so watch this space!
