A mountainous challenge for safe water

 In News

Good things come in 3's...

Three friends, three charities and three very big hills.

Darren Driscoll, Des Rogers and Jonathan Hartnell-Beavis from Shifnal dared themselves to take on the national 3 peaks challenge, testing their endurance and fortitude for not one, but 3 great causes: Severn Hospice, St Andrews Church and Village Water.

The 3 peaks challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – racking an impressive walking distance of 23 miles and a total ascent of 10,052 ft.

The challenge was met and smashed last weekend with the 3 intrepid mountaineers completing in 23 hours and 23 minutes – “Not bad for a bunch of antiques” says Jonathan.

The trio have raised an amazing £410 towards our projects, which will help support 14 people with access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation. Not bad for a days trek.

A huge thank you to Darren, Des and Jonathan from all of us at Village Water. Thanks to them more people will benefit from life-changing facilities, improving their health and giving them more opportunities.

Don’t worry, there’s still time to donate. Show your support for these superstar fundraisers on their Just Giving page, here.
