New Bewerley Community School staff to scale Three Peaks

A group of staff from New Bewerley Community School in Beeston are set to climb the Three Peaks of Yorkshire to raise vitaly needed funding.

The school houses a Resource Provision unit for 20 children with complex learning and physical needs. Many of ther children have profound communication, medical and physical needs. In order for them to participate in enriching and fulfilling experiences and overcome their personal challenges, they require highly specialist play equipment which is expensive.

The staff have set a challenge to raise £3,000 by completing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. The route is 24 miles (38.6km) long and involves 5,000 ft (1,600 metres) of vertical ascent.

Explaining why they are doing it Jacqui Driscoll said:

“We are passionate about providing the best possible life experiences for every child in our unit.”
