Get Your Walking Boots On For Our Yorkshire Three Peaks Charity Challenge This October!

29 September 2015

24.5 mile charity challenge planned for Saturday 17th October 2015.

Fans are invited to join us on Saturday 17th October as we take on Yorkshire’s magnificent and famous three highest peaks; Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough! Money raised will be used to support the Barnsley FC Community Trust (Registered Charity No. 1118735).

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge is renowned for being one of Yorkshire’s toughest challenges and is one of those must do events. It should not be taken lightly, but once you’ve completed it the amazing sense of achievement makes it all worthwhile! The walk kicks-off at Horton–in–Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire and walkers will be fully supported on the day with expert guides, maps, refreshments, commemorative T-Shirt and a certificate issued to each walker completing the challenge. Plus, we'll be sure to keep you fully updated with news from our away game at Southend United which will be taking place on the same day!

The Barnsley FC Community Trust is a registered charity and the aim is simple – to help improve the quality of life for people in our local community. The Trust uses the power of football and Barnsley Football Club to engage and improve the lives of local people through a range of programmes and initiatives. The money raised through this event will help us fund the range of programmes and continue to make a positive influence on the lives of local people.

Your support will allow the Trust to provide much needed funding for projects such as our Fit Reds health initiative, disability sports groups, 16-18 education programmes and various other projects which are vital in supporting the local community. It currently costs just short of £2000 a day to run the charity and it is only through the incredible support from our fans that these targets are met. By walking for the Barnsley FC Community Trust, you will be helping us help people across Barnsley.
