Penny & Christine's Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge

After losing over 4 stone i decided to challenge myself to walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks on the 3rd July 2021. My sister is doing this challenge with me not only for herself but as encouragement for me.

We will be starting at chapel le Dale 

Summit of Ingleborough - 723 metres
Summit of Pen-y-Ghent - 694 metres
Summit of Whernside - 736 metres

the walk will be commencing  at around 6am and finishing at approx 6.45pm

We have decided we would like to raise as much money for Flamborough life boat station & Flamborough preschool. this will be split 50/50

they both offer so much to the local community.

About Flamborough lifeboat station:

Flamborough has had a lifeboat station for 150 years. Initially there was a station at North landing and South landing both housing wooden rowing/sailing boats.

1934 First motor lifeboat arrived at North landing. 1936 South landing station closed.

1993 Flamborough’s All weather lifeboat The Will And Fanny Kirby was withdrawn from service and the North landing station closed down and a brand new station opened at South Landing housing a rigid inflatable (Atlantic  class lifeboat) where it remains to this day.

The station currently has an Atlantic 85 named Elizabeth Jane Palmer (named after the daughter of the person who generously donated the money for the boat)which arrived at Flamborough in 2007.In 2020 the lifeboat launched on service a total of 34 times and saved 6 lives.

The boat is 8.5 metres long has twin 115 horsepower outboard motors and has a top speed of 35knots with a crew of 4. Atlantic 85’s are the fastest lifeboats in service on the coast.


Flamborough Preschool:

Flamborough Pre-School are currently raising funds to relocate to a purpose-built facility on the grounds of the primary School. Currently operating from a shared hall means that the services we can offer are limited and do not meet the demand for wrap-around and holiday childcare in the village. The new facility will not only enable us to offer full time provision including holidays for under 5’s, it will also allow us to extend our offer to include holiday and after school care for primary aged children. In addition to this, a dedicated area will be created to offer support to children and families, facilitate groups and meetings and meet the various needs of the families in our community.
