NFH&W Treasurer, Ishwer Tailor MBE, recently raised £550 for charity by taking part in the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge in Yorkshire.
However, as you can see from this picture, taken at the 2013 Leyland Health Mela, he was not left entirely unscathed by the experience. Having completed 18 miles and conquered the summits of both Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, he took a fall on the descent from Whernside and injured his ankle. As a result, he attended both the Leyland and Fylde Coast Mela’s on crutches and with his lower leg in plaster.
The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge follows a circular route that is 24.5 miles long and crosses the summits of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. Ishwer was therefore close to finishing the challenge when his accident occurred. Nevertheless, his fundraising efforts were still very successful and both the Global Concerns Trust and Galloway’s Society for the Blind benefited from the money he raised.
