Support our Power Peaks Team

Only a few weeks until our teams take on the Power Peak Challange!

From Ben Nevis to Barclays



In only a few weeks our teams will be preparing themselves to complete the daunting Power Peaks 2012 Challenge. We are pleased to be working in partnership with both Barclays and Together For Short Lives in this fundraising event which we hope will raise £100,000 for the charities.

On the 5th July 2012 teams of Barclays staff and Diana Award Holders will be attempting to complete the national Three Peaks Challenge; climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland, Snowdon in Wales and Scafell Pike in England in just 24 hours. In terms of scale, the three peaks total 11,177 feet, involves walking 26 miles and travelling 482 miles. Phew!

The moment that our Three Peaks team finish, the London teams will begin their daunting challenge of climbing three of the tallest buildings in London in just 4 hours! They will be scaling the Heron Tower (46 storeys), 1 Canada Square (50 storeys) and Barclays office in Canary Wharf (32 storeys).

This is our biggest fundraising challenge to date and we want to smash the £100,000 target!

If every Diana Award Holder donated £1 we would have already reached £36,000!

Would you like to hold your own fundraising event in your school, university or office to help us reach the target? We love the idea of people up and down the country holding their own cake sales, office bingo and non-uniform days! To get you started you can download our fundraising tools at the end of this page. You will need to link your event to the fundraising team so that we can track how much you collectively raise. Click here for the team page
