ClwydAlyn team set to take on Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for The Osbourne Trust


Three members of staff from ClwydAlyn are about to tackle the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for the organisation’s charity of choice for 2022, The Osbourne Trust – the charity that supports young people whose parents have cancer.

ClwydAlyn’s Chief Executive, Clare Budden; Programme Manager, Victoria Evans, and Pathway Project Manager, Amy Teodorescu, with Rachel Storr Barber, Head of Governance and Regulation as their driver, will be tackling the 24-hour challenge in July and have set up a JustGiving fundraising link in support of the charity.

The brave women are looking to raise £1,000 through their challenge and have so far raised £330 from their supporters.

Clare Budden said:

“We all decided to do it when ClwydAlyn picked its charity of choice for 2022 which we all agreed was a worthy cause, providing children aged 16 years and under whose parent/s have cancer access to recreational activities during a parent/s treatment.

“We aim to complete the challenge, that will involve the three of us hiking up the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, in 24 hours; with a total walking distance of 23 miles, and a total ascent of 3,064 metres.”

Amy Teodorescu who’s been training hard over the last few months added:

"We know taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge isn’t going to be easy, a lot could go wrong up on the mountains but we’re excited and up for the challenge! Hopefully we’ve done all we can to prepare ourselves for it.”

Rachel Storr Barber who’ll be transporting the women to all three sites explained:

“We are all taking part in this challenge to show our love and support for a worthy charity, and we’re grateful for all the support we’ve received so far.

“ClwydAlyn’s values are Hope, Trust and Kindness and we believe strongly in supporting North Wales’s communities. Cancer affects so many of us and all too often the children are forgotten about; the Osbourne Trust is here to help as many of those children as possible and it is a privilege to play a role in funding this vital charity.”

Victoria Evans concluded:

“May is National Walking Month and during the last three weeks all three of us have upped our ante, going on regular hikes and increasing our distance to prepare ourselves for the real deal in July.

“As part of our training all three of us will be completing practice runs up Snowdon during the next few weeks and we would love to welcome all who would like to join in and support us.”
