Hampshire Police Officer’s Three Peaks Challenge

Four Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary Officers climb three of the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales for your local Air Ambulance.

Steph, Dave, Chris and Tom completed the Three Peaks Challenge at the weekend and have raised collectively more than £1,600 for our life-saving charity.

In just 24 hours, and in the rain and cloud, the team climbed Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike. They decided to support our charity with their challenge after working alongside our team at incidents.

Steph said:

“The challenge itself was tough but I guess that’s why it’s called a challenge! The weather conditions were pretty poor with rain and cloud at the top of each peak and even snow at the top of Ben Nevis! But in some weird way we all enjoyed it and were at least still talking to each other by the end!

“We decided to raise money for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance because as Hampshire Police Officers each of us has relied on them at some point in our careers, their knowledge and skill is second to none and there is no doubt that both we and those they help feel a huge sense of relief when they arrive on scene.

We have been blown away by everyone’s generosity but by raising the money we have we are just glad to have been able to help in some small way.”

Lily Worth, Supporter Engagement Coordinator at the charity said:

“We are hugely grateful to the wonderful Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary Officers that so kindly raised an incredible amount with their 24-hour Three Peaks Challenge, their generous support will ensure that we can continue be there for those who need it the most. Our crew are always grateful for the support and safety police officers provide for them on scene.”

There’s still time to support the team on their GoFundMe page.
