Alnwick Young Farmers prepare for Three Peaks epic


A hardy bunch of Alnwick Young Farmers are gearing up for a gruelling charity mission, in memory of an inspirational 25-year-old who died last year. In May, fifteen intrepid members of the group will be tackling the Three Peaks Challenge – to climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in just 24 hours. The gang are taking on the arduous feat in honour of brave farmer Stu Ridley, who lost his five-month battle with an inoperable brain tumour in July.

A hardy bunch of Alnwick Young Farmers are gearing up for a gruelling charity mission, in memory of an inspirational 25-year-old who died last year.

In May, fifteen intrepid members of the group will be tackling the Three Peaks Challenge – to climb the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in just 24 hours.

The gang are taking on the arduous feat in honour of brave farmer Stu Ridley, who lost his five-month battle with an inoperable brain tumour in July. They hope to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, as well as the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS), and have set a target of £2,000.

As part of their quest, the Young Farmers are appealing to local businesses to sponsor and help the team, whether it be through the donation of equipment, food or transport for the event. Anyone who is interested should email Jess at jessstraker@live.co.uk
