Northampton-based 1st Blisworth Scout Group has successfully completed the National Three Peaks Challenge raising money for the club with the help from local construction firm, R G Carter.

Scout group leaders Steven Smith, Pete Rock, Steve Watkins and Michelle Watkins accomplished the challenge climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – the three highest mountains in Scotland, England, Wales – within 24 hours, including travel.

R G Carter provided the team with a van and fuel, enabling them to complete the challenge in an impressive 22 hours and 53 minutes and 53 seconds.

Michelle Watkins, from R G Carter, said  “The scout group and I would like to thank R G Carter for being supportive and providing us with the transport. Without the van, we could not have completed this task in the amazing time in which we did.”
