Young Rangers climb Penyghent to raise awareness of Three Peaks Project
8:00am Friday 25th October 2013 in News
Twelves Young Rangers put on onesies to walked up Penyghent on Saturday to raise awareness of the Three Peaks Project.
The group, which meets once a month, wanted to share their love of the national park and highlight the work that had to be done to maintain the footpath network.
National park outreach officer Catherine Kemp said: “Rather than do a practical task, they decided to walk up Penyghent in their onsies and to talk to other walkers they passed about the Three Peaks Project and to give out information about the new Three Peaks app.
“They also want to raise money for the project as it costs £28 per metre to maintain footpaths on the Three Peaks.”
The 12 youngsters had to contend with misty conditions but had a good day, despite getting rather warm in their outfits.
One member of the group kept his crocodile suit on the whole day!
The Young Rangers is a club for young people, aged 11 to 16, which is run by staff and volunteers from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
There are currently 27 Young Rangers, most of whom attend Settle College.
