At Alex and Matteo Estate Agents, we believe in giving back to the community that has supported us throughout the years. Recently, we embarked on a thrilling adventure to support the British Red Cross by participating in the renowned Three Peaks Challenge. We wanted to share this exhilarating experience with you!

The Inspiration Behind the Challenge

The British Red Cross is an organisation that we admire deeply. Their commitment to providing emergency assistance, disaster relief, and education within communities worldwide is truly commendable. Inspired by their mission, we decided to undertake the Three Peaks Challenge, aiming to raise awareness and funds for their noble cause.

Planning the Adventure


The Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in the UK: Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales. To add a unique twist to our journey, we rented a campervan just outside London. This would be our home away from home and transportation for the duration of the challenge.

The Journey Begins: Ben Nevis

Our journey began on a crisp Saturday morning. After a long drive up to Scotland, we arrived at the base of Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the UK, standing at 1,345 metres. The excitement and nerves were palpable as we started our ascent. Ben Nevis, with its rugged terrain and breathtaking views, was a formidable challenge but one we were determined to complete.

The climb wasn’t the easiest! However, our team’s camaraderie and determination saw us through to the summit. The panoramic view from the top was a rewarding sight, making every gruelling step worth it. After a brief rest and some celebratory photos, we began our descent, eager to continue our journey.

On to Scafell Pike

Following our descent from Ben Nevis, we drove to the Lake District, where we spent the night in a quaint little campsite. The following morning, we woke up early and set out to conquer Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak at 978 metres. Scafell Pike presented a different set of challenges compared to Ben Nevis. The paths were rocky and steep, demanding both physical and mental endurance. Despite the exhaustion from the previous climb, our team pushed forward! Reaching the summit of Scafell Pike was a moment of triumph, reaffirming our commitment to the challenge and the charity.

The Final Ascent: Snowdon





After successfully summiting Scafell Pike, we made our way to Wales for the final leg of our journey: Snowdon. Standing at 1,085 metres, Snowdon is known for its picturesque landscapes and diverse trails. We arrived in the evening, allowing ourselves a good night’s sleep before the final climb.

The next morning, we embarked on the final ascent. The trail was relaxed compared to the previous peaks, but the cumulative fatigue from the journey made it a test of endurance. The support from each other and the encouraging thoughts of our supporters back home kept us going. As we reached the summit of Snowdon, the sense of accomplishment was overwhelming. We had completed the Three Peaks Challenge, raising funds and awareness for the British Red Cross along the way!

Reflections on the Experience

The Three Peaks Challenge was more than just a physical feat; it was a testament to the power of teamwork and perseverance. Each step we took was a step towards supporting the invaluable work of the British Red Cross. The journey also provided us with an opportunity to bond as a team, overcoming obstacles together and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

The Importance of Charity Work
