Peak challenge for Bulwell boy Zach

A team of intrepid adventurers are about to take on a challenge to help raise funds for a charity that is helping to support a Bulwell family.

The group is training for a Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the highest mountains in Great Britain within 24 hours, to raise money for Heart Link Nottingham.

The charity is currently supporting Emma and Jonny Walker, who have recently had a baby boy called Zack.

Little Zack has a problem with his heart and requires surgery.

The charity helps to support families like Emma and Jonny’s by paying for accomodation so they do not have to leave their children.

Th team will be climbing England’s Scafell Pike, Wales’s Mount Snowdon and Scotland’s Ben Nevis on 28th September.

Team member Darren Wombwell said: “We are all training as much as we can but usually four or five times a week.

“We have also been up Snowdon as a practice and to tes.”

All of the team are originally from Bulwell and all still live locally.

Darren added: “The reason we are doing this is to raise money and awareness for Heart Link as they offer so much support and also supply specialist equipment to treat children with heart issues.”

Members of the team include Bryan Kelly, Darren Wombwell, Ian Crossland, Garry Martin, Gavin Crossland, Mark Turner, Robert Archer, Michael Perry, Paul Smith and Dave Terry.
