Hike Against Poverty with Leeds North and West Foodbank to raise funds to fight poverty in North and West Leeds.

About this event

This challenge is a 24-mile walk over the three largest peaks in Yorkshire (Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) come rain or shine we'll be taking on the challenge and raising as much money as we can!

The funds raised will support Leeds North and West Foodbank, a network of foodbank distribution centres in the Leeds area providing much needed support to individuals and families in crisis in the fight to combat poverty and hunger.

The event price is £30 plus a small booking fee. This price will cover professional mountain guides, a support vehicle at the 2 road points on route and a Leeds NW charity T-Shirt.

You will receive an email from Nicki OLeary at Leeds North and West Foodbank which will include an event booking form (which will need to be completed and returned) together with further event details and a kit list closer to the time of the event.

As this is a charity event we would encourage you to get out there and raise as much sponsorship as possible... 24 miles is a long way and we think that deserves the recognition and support of your family, friends and colleagues.

You're free to raise your own sponsorship, either using a traditional form or by creating a Give as You Live page and selecting Leeds North and West Foobank as your chosen charity (https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/campaign/hike-against-poverty-yorkshire-3-peaks-challenge) - we ask all participants to target a minimum fundraise of £50

Please also remember to bring this ticket with you on the day (either printed or in the Eventbrite app) along with all your essential kit. We have listed below some of the key items we would encourage you to bring:

  • Walking boots
  • Rucksack (35 litres plus is recommended)
  • Waterproof clothing
  • Lightweight clothing for walking (we would not recommend wearing jeans)
  • Spare warm layers
  • Spare walking socks
  • Hat and gloves
  • Torch (just in case)
  • Packed lunch (other light refreshments will be provided by the support vehicle)
  • Water
  • Walking poles (optional)
  • Fully charged mobile phone

There will be a professional mountain guide and the use of a support vehicle on the day which will be carrying a range of light refreshments. You can also leave any spare kit with the support vehicle to lighten the load on the walk.

On behalf of Leeds North and West Foodbank we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking part and we look forward to you joining us for what is expected to be a fantastic day out.
