3 Peaks in 3 Days for Kujali
Months of training and preparation paid off in July, when 40 students and 4 Teachers from St Dominic's Sixth form college braved the weather to climb the 3 highest peaks in the UK in 3 days! The trip was a lot of fun for many different reasons, and all the students enjoyed what was a lifetime experience.
The weather was superb throughout, so sunny days and blue skies were experienced every day! The mountains were climbed in geographical order: Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.
The journeys between the peaks were all covered by coach, which made for song singing, games and general good times! Accommodation was in the form of cosy Youth Hostels, so hot showers and warm beds were the reward for hard trekking during the day. Trekking involved ascents and relentless descents, all in all over 9 hours daily, followed by long journeys to the next destination.
The team raised just over £16000 for the Uganda Orphan project!
Well done team and thank you all!
