Two Doncaster College staff recently completed the tough Scafell Pike Five Peak Challenge of 2013 to raise money for Charity.
Kelly Jarvis and Cath Brooksbank took on the challenge of climbing five of the highest peaks in the Lake District in one day and in doing so they raised more than £500 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Kelly, a Registry Data Administrator at the College, and who is from Sprotborough, near Doncaster, said.
“We are very proud of what we’ve achieved, it was a very physical and emotionally demanding day that started off lovely but unfortunately as soon as we got half way up the first peak we were hidden by cloud and mist, it was not an easy task and it took us 9hrs 45mins which is a very long day of walking, climbing, slipping, tripping, moaning, groaning, swearing, however saying all that it was all worth it in the end and we did actually really enjoy it!!”

Overall the pair hiked 11.5 miles over the five peaks and scaled Scarfell pike the highest peak in England at 978 metres. Throughout the difficult and demanding challenge they were fully supported by the Marie Curie walking team and other participants.

Cath Brooksbank, a Registry Coordinator at the College and hails from Cantley, near Doncaster said, “We have an estimated total of £512 so we smashed our £200 target which means our sponsorship is helping to provide the much needed care and support that the Marie Curie nurses do.”

Glutens for punishment, they hope to do another challenge again next year but are, as yet, undecided as to what that will be.
