National Three Peaks challenge makes National Headlines!

14 September 2021

PAC manager James Duffy and his fellow intrepid hikers succesfully completed thier National Three Peaks challenge in support of Army veteran Jon Hilton. 

In November 2020 Ex-Royal Engineer Jon, who many of you will know Jon as the leader of the our First-Aid and Security at Platform Festival, has his left leg amputated due to a blood clot casued by surgery from a military injury sustained during active service. 

Jon recruited a team of supporters to take on the challenge of scaling the National Three Peaks - succesfully tackling Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike - to so far raise over £7,800 for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, Hull4Heroes and the Royal British Legion.

Jon and the team's incredible journey has caught the attention of the national press with the Daily Mail featuring the incredible story which you can read again here:

With a total fund-raising goal of £13,000 donations can still be made to their Just Giving page at Crowdfunding to support those who have helped me before, during & after my amputation. BLESMA, Royal British Legion, SSAFA, HULL4HEROES on JustGiving
