Four members of Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust, Mark Swanston, Brian Parkin, Duncan Black and Mike Bell with their friend Chris Eke are taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge on the weekend of June 8th/9th to raise money for Action Medical Research. This is a children’s charity dedicated to improving the health of babies and children around the U.K.
The Challenge involves climbing to the summits of the highest mountains in Scotland ( Ben Nevis ), England ( Scarfell Pike ) and Wales ( Snowdon ) all within a 24 hour period.
In the past, the charity has been behind many breakthroughs including ultrasound scanning in pregnancy and polio vaccine. It relies entirely on donations to fund a range of research projects into serious childhood conditions and to improve the lives of children with disabilities.
The Supporters Trust is lending its support through a generous offer from secretary Isla Barber. In addition, several individual members have already pledged their support.
