Henfield emergency responders training for the Three Peaks Challenge in June are in their final training stages.
HART (Henfield Area Response Team) members met at The White Hart, Henfield, for a strategy talk.
Landlord Gyles Culver is one of the sponsors together with solicitors Griffith Smith Farrington Webb - the company HART team member Anne Dewdney works for.
Sponsor Sean Preston, of Southdown Truck and Crane, was also at the event with mother Margaret.
The Three Peaks challenge entails climbing Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (Cumbria) and Snowdon (Wales) within 24 hours, transported to each by two volunteer drivers - Dave Fletcher and John Rodrigues.
Team members are Anne Dewdney, Claire Greenfield, Sandra Parsons, Martin Tooth, Kas Fletcher, Josh Westlake and Mark Skilton. Heather Kingdon from PART (Partridge Green Response Team) will also be part of the team.
Mark Skilton’s Henfield company DSA Products has donated £200 to the walkers. Last year the team climbed Snowdon as part of their training and currently they are doing hill climbs across the South Downs.
Said HART co-ordinator Dave Fletcher: “It’s a tough challenge but the team are well into training - and they are working hard to get into top form for the event.”
Nadia Cowdrey, partner at Griffith Smith Farrington Webb, said: “Everyone here in the office is very proud of the work our colleague Anne Dewdney has done for HART with her team - and we are very happy to lend our support.
“We have no doubt the team’s efforts will make a huge difference to the vital work of responders in and around Henfield.”
