1000 MILES, THREE COUNTIES, THREE PEAKS AND THREE GAMES OF FIVES

Covering 1000 miles, scaling three peaks and completing three games of Fives, in three counties Mark Yates’ (OW 1992) Three Peaks Fives Challenge was finally complete.

The challenge began on the Thursday evening with the official “balls up” (the technical term for the start of a Fives match) and game of Rugby Fives at Fetter College in Edinburgh, to the early morning ascent of Ben Nevis on Friday morning, Fives at St Bees that evening, Saturday morning ascent of Scarfell Pike to Colwyn Bay and Fives challenge against Rydal Penrhos, with the final leg scaling Snowden on the Sunday morning.

Huge congratulations to Mark and his team of supporters for completing the challenge, but also for raising over £1500 for the Midland Air Ambulance Trust and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. If you would like to make a donation please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MarkWilliamYates
