3rd July 2017

Last week, fearless staff members from Harrogate College challenged themselves to walk the Three Peaks to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

The charity is close to the hearts of many of the staff and students at Harrogate College, as seven young people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. All money raised goes towards making sure that the expert care and support means that they don’t have to face cancer alone.  

The group set off at 5.30am on Friday 30th June and began racing up Pen-y-Ghent in the rain, which stands at 694 metres, followed by Whernside at 736 metres and Ingleborough at 723 metres.


“It was a fantastic yet challenging experience that brought the team closer together, with everyone supporting each other and their own personal goals, all in the name of charity!” – Grace Todd, Harrogate College


The Harrogate College team have so far risen over £1100 for Teenage Cancer Trust, and the total is continuing to increase.


Congratulations to the staff; on to the next challenge!
