3Cs challenge issued to would be 'adventurers'

Lancashire Clubs for Young People is once again organising its popular 3C's Challenge - encompassing Caving, Climbing and Cycling - which will raise money to provide activities to underprivilaged young people across the local area.

The 3C's Challenge is a different kind of sponsored challenge for 'wannabe' adventurers, with a day full of Caving, Climbing and Cycling challenges. No previous experience is required other than to be reasonably fit and to be up for a challenge!

The 3C's Challenge will take place on Friday 20th May 2011 from between 9.00am to approximately 5.00pm. Teams of four persons £125 minimum sponsorship per person (£500 per team) are invited to enter, although if individuals are interested they can be partnered with others.

"This is an excellent opportunity to support a local charity working on local issues," say the organisers, who also tel us only limited places are available, so early booking is advised.
