Our very own Community Care & Public Law Specialist, solicitor Stuart Luke, is taking on the 3 Peaks Challenge for charity.

Stuart is a leader in the field of Asylum Support, Disability Rights and Child Detention. He has a national reputation for holding Public Bodies to account for duties owed to the most vulnerable in society and is now taking on his biggest challenge to date.

On Friday 30th May 2014 Stuart, together with a small team of dedicated fundraisers, will be embarking on the 3 Peaks Challenge. This involves climbing the highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland, within 24 hours. The 3 Peaks will see Stuart start at the base of Ben Nevis in Scotland at 6am Friday morning before making the ascent to the peak standing at 1344 meters. From there Stuart will travel to the Lake District where he will attempt to scale Scafell Pike standing at 978 meters before finishing with a night trek up to the top of Mount Snowdon standing at 1085 meters.

Stuart and the team are undertaking the challenge for three worth while causes, Diabetes UK, Cancer Research UK and Autism Wishes.

Stuart has set up a JustGiving Fundraising Page for anybody wishing to donate and support him. This can be accessed by clicking on the following link or alternatively donations can be made by texting STUQ77 £Amount to 70070. It couldn’t be easier.

In preparing for the challenge Stuart had the following words:

I have been truly overwhelmed by the support of my colleagues, charities, agencies and everybody involved with me, the generosity of you all can not be measured on any scale, your donations have surpassed all expectations and I am extremely grateful. I am now looking forward to the challenge itself with the #deevalleytrekkers and I thank you all for your kind wishes. Lets hope I can now actually complete the challenge. The weather is looking good for the start and I have no doubt it will be an amazing experience’.

Please support Stuart and the team with donor text STUQ77 £Amount to 70070 or at donations however great or small would be warmly welcomed and gratefully received and really will make all the difference.
