A group of young farmers from Shipston will be taking on the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge in aid of the Katharine House Hospice later this month.

The team will hike 24 miles in under 12 hours, over three of Yorkshire’s highest peaks, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in the Pennine Range, on April 28.

Two members of Shipston Young Farmers Club, Katherine and Thomas Page, lost their mother, Mary Teresa Page, in May last year.

With the support of the club, the family would like to show its gratitude to the hospice, whose staff cared for Mary.

Both Katherine and Thomas would like to give as much back to the charity as possible by undertaking the challenge.

EH Spencer in Shipston has donated clothes for the challenge so all participates have been kitted out with warm and waterproof jackets, which have been further sponsored by BP Page and Sons Agricultural Contractors, the Page family business.

As well as all members of the party who are individually raising money for the charity, the family is asking for further donations which can be made through a JustGiving page.

Donations can be made directly to Katharine House Hospice by visiting www.khh.org.uk or by texting 07864 092588.
