Take the four peaks charity challenge

Mencap is calling on all hikers, trekkers and mountain walkers from Lisburn to join the learning disability charity for its Four Peaks Challenge this August.

The organised challenge involves reaching the summit of four peaks across the province of Ulster over two consecutive Saturdays, that’s two peaks per day: Northern Ireland’s two highest peaks Slieve Donard at 850 metres and Slieve Commedagh at 767 metres on Saturday August 16. County Derry/Londonderry’s Slieve Gallion at 528 metres and Mount Errigal, County Donegal’s highest peak at 751 metres on Saturday August 23. The registration fee is £35 per day and participants need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £100. To register call 9069 1351 or email fundraising.ni@mencap.org.uk.
