Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

Bro James Steele and Bro Robert Atkinson of Technical No. 5666 undertook and completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge on Saturday 13th June 2015. The challenge takes on a circuit route of the three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, the walk covers a distance of 26.1 miles with nearly 5,249 ft of ascent and descent, which is to be completed in under 12 hours.

They managed to raise a total of £685, through sponsorship and generous donations by the Daggards and Technical Lodge. Bros Steele and Atkinson had the great pleasure in presenting a cheque for £685 to Hull Samaritans on Friday 10 July 2015.

The cheque was accepted by Chairman Mr A M Boden and Director Mrs Anne C Smith who provided warm hospitality and showed the brethren where the money would be spent repairing the facilities.
