D2 Rail Scales New Heights For Rescue Charities

A team of adventurous walkers from D2 Rail has taken on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in support of two rescue charities.

Led by Rebecca Mercer, the team took on the gruelling 24-mile route with a 5,200ft ascent. The challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, which form part of the Pennine range and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Rebecca chose to pledge support to Mountain Rescue England and Wales and North West Air Ambulance, due to the work the two organisations carry out, rescuing climbers, walkers and other vulnerable people, from mountains and other inaccessible places. The organisations are particularly close to Rebecca’s heart, and with the help of her friends at D2 Rail, she has managed to raise almost £500 for them so far.

On completing the challenge, Rebecca said: “We had some fantastic views and some misty ones, trick knees, bandy hips and horrendous leg cramps, but the whole team made it round and we couldn’t be more proud.”

Congratulations to Rebecca and the team!
