Two council employees are preparing themselves to climb the UK’s three biggest mountains in just 24 hours to raise money for three important charities.
Caerphilly County Borough Council staff James Hurley, 26, and Chloe Thomas, 20, are to take on the British Three Peaks Challenge later this month to raise funds for Gofal Cymru, Velindre Hospital and the Neurosurgery Ward at University Hospital Wales.
The challenge, taking place on August 16, will see the intrepid duo race against the clock to scale Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales) in less than 24 hours.
James, who is from Cefn Hengoed and works in the council’s Housing Benefits department, and Chloe, who lives in Pontlottyn and works in the authority’s Council Tax department, have both said the charities are close to their hearts after family members had used their services recently.
