3 Peaks Challenge Weekend of September 16
To wish everyone taking part in this venture good luck and hoping all conditions are perfect for success. A group of regulars at The Bell, including landlady, Sharon, will be attempting to climb the 3 highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours. Eight men and women of all ages are taking part to raise funds for Sobell House Hospice charity, which is the current pub charity. The challenge involves climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden within 24 hours.
The success of the group not only depends on their fitness but also on the weather being suitable for the climbs and to a vital team of drivers and supporters to get them to each mountain. If you would like to sponsor them, please talk to Sharon at The Bell or go to their just giving page at
