Megan's Three Peaks Challenge
Last month our intrepid Wine Buyer Megan Clarke swapped trekking around vineyards and wine exhibitions for the daunting undertaking that is ‘The Three Peaks Challenge’.
This was a very personal challenge for Megan as she explains:
“On the 24th June 2017 we got married, but just 10 weeks before that we sadly lost Adam’s lovely mum, Marian. She was a massive part of everyone’s life and although we had a brilliant day it was obviously very hard too, as she wasn’t there to celebrate with us. She had an illness called Sarcoidosis, something which is quite rare and therefore underfunded. It took her from being a very strong, generous and loving woman to someone who needed permanent oxygen as it attacked her lungs. So, we decided to do the Three Peaks Challenge finishing on the 24thJune, our first wedding anniversary and raise funds for SarcoidosisUK.”
Needless to say, despite the arduous nature of conquering the highest respective peaks in Scotland England and Wales in a 24hr window, Megan and Adam prevailed and were blessed with stunning weather for the most part too! Most importantly though, they have to date managed to raise the incredible sum of £3,149.82 (inc. Gift Aid) for the cause so close to their hearts.
