A member of staff at a local college is celebrating completing the gruelling Three Peak Challenge, helping to raise more than £2000 for charity.
Learning Advisor at Cornwall College Saltash, Emma Dorrian, was part of a team of 18 people to complete the Three Peak Challenge through snow, darkness and sunshine with excitement, accomplishment and pride.
The Three Peak Challenge involves climbing over 10,00ft up the three highest peaks of Scotland, England and Wales, within 24 hours.
The team climbed to the top of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowden whilst driving 462 miles between the peaks.
“It was an amazing experience shared with an inspiring group of people for a heart-felt cause, I feel enriched for having completed it, “Emma said.
The Ginger Prince Challenge Team was created to continue the legacy of Simon Adams. When Simon was diagnosed with this cruel disease, he set himself a challenge to raise £1 million to help research Motor Neurone Disease.
“His hope was that one day, in the not too distant future, the words you have Motor Neurone Disease will be followed by the phrase it is curable,” Emma explained.
“Each member of the team was fantastic, we set ourselves a gutsy challenge but made sure we had fun along the way.”
Head of Campus, Margaret Butfield, said it is an absolute pleasure to “have our own action girl here at Cornwall College Saltash”.
“Emma is always looking for her next challenge and how she can support local charities. We are extremely proud of her success in completing the Three Peak Challenge.”
