Bluebird Care Bromley Care Supervisor Diane Burden completes the 2015 National Three Peaks Challenge!


Diane (centre in left), along with her brother-in-law, niece, nephew and a few friendsOn 10th and 11th July, 2015, Diane (centre in the adjacent shot), along with her brother-in-law, niece, nephew and a few friends took on the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’ which saw them climb the highest mountains in Scotland (Ben Nevis -1344m), England (Scafell Pike – 978m) and Wales (Snowdon – 1085m).

The aim was to complete the challenge in 24 hours, which involved ascending (and descending) 10,000 feet, trekking over 27 miles and 10 hours of driving between mountains! 

The last hour of our descent from Ben Nevis was done in the pounding rain in dark, treacherous conditions! 

They had terrible weather on all three peaks which cost them time, but we're pleased to say they completed the Challenge with 12 minutes to spare!

Despite the weather, the sore feet and aching limbs, Diane swears blind she enjoyed the challenge, and may even have pursaded a few of her Bluebird Care Bromley colleagues to join her next year...!

Congratulations to Diane!

All money was raised in aid of "Stand Up To Cancer".
