We are leaving our page open for anybody who would still like to donate to support our project of improving the menstrual health and hygiene of women and girls in rural Zimbabwe.

Thank you so much for a great day - it was all so well organised and welcoming! Look forward to coming back next year and hoping to get all three!

Thank you so much for organising another great 3 Peaks Trial day. As always, it was well worth the long return journey my son and I made from Southampton, and I was pleased with my improved time doing the Silver route. We enjoyed the day, and the beautiful countryside and views. It's a few years since I last did the Gold route, on my own, and so our joint challenge and goal is to prepare and complete the Gold route together at next year's 3 Peaks Trial. Great organisation on the day, and our thanks to all who made it such an enjoyable day.

Thanks for a great day out on the hills! Being a runner (and only Vet 70 to finish!) on the Gold route, I saw all 3 summits and chatted with lots of walkers on the uphill bits.
I'll be back next year to go over that bridge at Glangrwyney!
