Band of Builders is the story of what happens when people unite to help others. It started with one man’s desire to help his friend in his hour of need and has grown into a global movement run by tradespeople, for tradespeople.
Band of Builders provides practical assistance for members of the construction industry & their families who face life changing disabilities or illnesses. Without fundraising these projects would not be possible which is where we come in...
A group of volunteers will be taking on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge to test their stamina and determination on Saturday 13th April & 4th May in preparation for the iconic NATIONAL 3 PEAKS CHALLENGE on 29th June.
For those of you who don’t know, this involves the Three Peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) which are the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales. The challenge is to climb each of these three peaks - one after the other in 24 hours!
The total walking distance is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3064 metres (10,052ft) - twice the ascent of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, over a similar total walking distance. The total driving distance is 462 miles.
