trentbarton team takes the bus to the Three Peaks

A team of drivers and colleagues from trentbarton are to climb the three highest mountains in great britain in 24 hours for the childrens charity When You Wish Upon a Star.

The Three Peaks challenge on 10-11 June will see 14 climbers tackle Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and then Snowdon - and of course they will take a bus between the mountains in Scotland, England and Wales.

The team is being bussed from Langley Mill to Fort William for a 4pm start at the base of the highest mountains in the Highlands. The bus driving duties are being shared by two volunteer drivers who will also fire up a camping stove ready for the walkers to refuel after each ascent and descent.

One of the walkers is Emma Sharpe from Loscoe, a driver on trentbarton's rainbow one service, who said: "A few people in the team have climbed one or two of the mountains before, but none of us have tackled all three in one expedition. One of the team, Alan Johnson, is a keen mountaineer and will be leading the way."

Most of the drivers taking part are based at Langley Mill, with others from Sutton. They are all raising sponsorship money for When You Wish Upon a Star, trentbarton's charity of the year for 2016.
