Three Peaks Challenge for local scout group

Three Peaks Challenge 2019

At Bridgewater School we believe in inspiring others through our own actions and witness wonderful examples of individuals challenging themselves to achieve for the benefit of others every day.

Just last month, Prep School’s Mr Suter took on the National Three Peaks Challenge 2019 to raise funds for his local scout group. Together with two other fathers, he tackled one of the nation’s great outdoor challenges and scaled the heights of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, raising £1,490 towards the 1st Golborne St Thomas Scout group’s trip to Kandersteg, Switzerland.

Said Mrs Suter: “The leaders at 1st Golborne St Thomas Scout Troop are extremely dedicated to the children within the Scout and Guide community. This year, they have created the opportunity for our children to travel to Switzerland for their summer camp, and not only have been organising the trip but have also been tirelessly fundraising to help offset the cost of this for our children. We took this challenge on to help them in their efforts.”

The National Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales within a 24 hour period – a total ascent of more than 3,000 metres. The dedicated trip completed the challenge in a time of 22 hours and 9 minutes. An inspiring achievement.

The freedom to be yourself is the greatest freedom of all
