West Norfolk's Team GOSH to take on the Three Peaks challenge




A team of nine people from West Norfolk are set to tackle the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales this weekend to raise thousands for charity.

The group decided to take on the challenge in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), which has helped children of those that are close to them.

Team GOSH (#AreWeNearlyThereYet) will climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon over a 24-hour period from 6am tomorrow in a bid to raise £10,000.

Group member Ed Bennett said: "In terms of team work, we are there to support each other which is one of the main aspects."

Inspiration for the challenge came from member Jack Kent whose son Danny was operated on by staff at GOSH when he was found to have a fused skull.

A post on the group's fundraising page says: "Danny's story touched all of his friends and family and it wasn't long before a team was put together of climbers and volunteers to push themselves physically and raise money for a great cause."

The team were also inspired by the treatment of another young boy who has been helped by GOSH.

Their fundraising began in November, which has seen them gather more than £9,000 since then.

Once the challenge is complete, the group will host an after party at Watlington Village Hall on Saturday, June 23 to raise further funds.

The group consists of Chris Sainty, Ed Bennett, Ben Moore, Jack Kent, James Moore, Dan Sillis, Craig Roberts, Nathan Sims and Gary Peek, who are pictured above.

They also have a support team, Mark Kent, Martin Moore and Alex Lal.
