The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, often within 24 hours.How to take part in the Three Peaks Challenge?You can take part in the Challenge in three ways — as a self-organised event, a professionally organised event, or as part of a charity-organised event. Self-organised events are often the cheapest way to take part, while many groups will benefit from the assistance provided by professional mountain guides.Self-organised groups can optionally register their challenge, for guidance on organising a safe and responsible challenge.The three peaks are:Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)Scafell Pike, in England (978m)Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1344m)It is a popular misconception that the three mountains in question are the three highest in Britain.

A fantastic adrenaline rush from 14,000ft. Do you dare to sit on the edge of the plane, looking at the views for miles around, the wind in your face, preparing yourself to jump out? Go on... you can do it..!
The skydive will take place at the Black Knights Parachute Centre, Hillam Lane, Cockerham, Lancs, LA2 0DY. This centre has been operating since 1964 and is now one of the longest established parachute training centres in the UK. Affiliated to the British Parachute Association, Black Knights offers facilities and training for both first time jumpers and experienced skydivers. Return transport will be offered however you are free to make your own way there with friends and family. The attached information pack tells you all about the skydive and includes the entry form to complete once you have made the nerve-racking decision to complete the jump. Also enclosed is a Declaration of Fitness form which must be completed by all skydivers. If you are 40 year old or older or have any medical conditions you must obtain a Doctor’s signature and stamp before you can register to take part. To secure your skydive there is a £50 non-refundable deposit payable upon entry. We ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £500. This covers the cost of the skydive which as you can appreciate is an expensive event to arrange. The actual cost of the skydive is £225 so we ask for a minimum sponsorship level to make the event financial viable for the Hospice. The more you can raise, the more Willowbrook Hospice will benefit. If you have any further questions please contact Mark on 01744 453 798 or email markp@willowbrookhospice.org.uk We look forward to seeing you at the Drop Zone!!Entry Pack 2014.pdf More Info
