Trek The Three Peaks of Dorset
Posted on: 19/03/2018
Join Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, and appreciate the stunning Dorset countryside at the very top of the county’s three highest peaks. On 29 September you can join the local charity and take on this unique opportunity during a 12-hour hike across the Dorset hills.
Participants will trek 26 miles across the Wessex Ridgeway and to the peaks of Lewesdon Hill, Pilsdon Pen and Bulbarrow Hill. These are the three biggest peaks in Dorset and within one day you will be ascending a combined height of 1,350 meters – higher than Ben Nevis.
Lauren McCullough, events manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “This is definitely a unique trekking experience and a great opportunity for those that enjoy walking or just love spectacular views. This is a perfect challenge for those wanting to step out of their comfort zone and set themselves a target for 2018. Not only will you have a fantastic experience, but you will be raising vital funds for Dorset’s disability charity.”
To take part in the Dorset 3 Peaks event, an entry fee of £35 applies and a minimum fundraising target of £265. If you book your place before 1 April you can receive a £5 discount.
Tom, age 35 who lives in Lulworth, took part in the trek last year and said: “It was such a great experience walking with a group of people passionate about supporting Diverse Abilities. The scenery was stunning and the trek leaders were brilliant. It was tougher than I expected, but well worth it.”
Your fundraising could achieve the daily cost to run the advice service to provide guidance and support, specialist toys for children with disabilities to play with, a day’s vital medical supplies for the children at the charity’s specialist school and much more.
