BAK and Southern Connections joined forces with Bradford based children and young person charity, One in a Million, to support the annual The Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge. A team of 40 volunteers walked a gruelling 24 Miles across the Yorkshire Dales, Starting at Horton in Ribblesdale at 7am in an effort to raise money for the charity’s work with disadvantaged children and young people in Bradford.
The challenge involved 1,582m of ascent over Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough and the team managed to complete it in just 12 hours.
