On September 19th, a group of sixteen took on The National Three Peaks Challenge to earn donations for the James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund. This was a 24 mile trek across Snowdon (Wales), Scafell Pike (England) and Ben Nevis (Scotland) with summit heights accumulating to 3407 metres – all in 24 hours. This is the story of how they have come to raise funds for us.
“On October 17th 2014, our lives were changed forever with the tragic loss of Mike Thompson.
Mike will always be known for his intelligent, ambitious and light-hearted nature but those closest to him have been exposed to the upsetting truths of suicide in young adults, the greatest cause of death amongst young men (15-35) in the UK.
JWSMF were of great comfort to Mike’s family in their time of need, and they fund a number of important and closely related initiatives.”
