BGAJ Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

On Saturday, 20 May 2023, members of the British Guild of Agricultural Journalists (BGAJ) walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for charity

The three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside are among the best-known in the Yorkshire Dales.

The 25-mile fundraising circular walk – literally up hill and down dale – was undertaken by nine BGAJ members and friends with guide David Pritchard.

The help and generosity of friends, family and supporters meant we raised more than £4000 –money divided equally (less GoFundMe commission) between three farming-related charities:

The BGAJ Charitable Trust helps farm journalists, communicators and their dependents who have fallen upon hard times or into poor health.

Farming Community Network (Charity no: 1095919)
With a network of over 400 volunteers, the FCN supports farmers and farming families across England and Wales through difficult times.

RSABI (Charity no: SC009828)
Supporting people in Scottish agriculture, RSABI provides practical, emotional and financial support to those working in the farming industry.

Thank you for your support.
