The Jessica Hope Challenge: 3 Peaks 3 Wheels 3 Days

In April 2011 Jess was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Jess & Will Blanche, very close friends of the Gauntley family.  

10 months ago Will decided to tackle Ben Nevis, Skiddaw and Snowdon over the course of 3 days to raise money for the foundation. However, this isn't your standard 3 Peaks Challenge as Will was born with Spina Bifida and uses a wheelchair.

RGK Wheelchairs have kindly donated a handbike "The Mountain Beast" in order for Will to attempt this extraordinary challenge and Will has been supported by several local businesses. 

The BBC are filming the event and Will is also due to appear on local radio.

Good Luck Will and the Team!!
