Natalie and Jasmine – another Three Peaks Challenge
On Saturday 26th June, Jasmine Roebuck and Natalie Smith took on National Three Peaks 24 Hour Challenge, driving between and then scaling Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in the Lake District National Park and Mount Snowdon in Wales. The challenge involved hiking approximately 23 miles, over 3000m (10,000ft) of ascent, twice that of the Yorkshire 3 peaks and approximately 468 miles of driving! In total, they raised over £1000 for The Jordan Legacy!
Touched by mental health issues close to them, Jasmine and Natalie wanted to do something that would challenge them both, whilst at the same time using nature, outdoors and walking within the challenge. Both felt that the pandemic lockdown had had an impact on their mental health and getting out into nature has been a key part of ‘staying sane’ over the past year.
