Blackburn men take on Three Peaks challenge in aid of Help for Heroes
11:08am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
SHADSWORTH uncle and nephew team Jason and Michael Duckworth are taking on the Yorkshire three peaks challenge to raise money for Help for Heroes, a charity that supports injured soldiers.
The pair are being sponsored to walk a total of 24 miles, ascending the steep inclines of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in 12 hours.
Father-of-four Michael said: “You hear so much about wounded soldiers, and we both feel like they need all the help they can get. I have a disabled son and we’ve done a lot of fundraising for him, and we know how important charity work is, and the difference it can make.
The team have already been sponsored for £300, but hope to raise much more before the walk on Saturday, September 14.
People can sponsor the team by searching Jay and Mick Duckworth’s Charity Hike on Facebook.
