Their challenge began at 7.30am, climbing the 44 storey tower at Saffron Square and embracing the fierce winds on the way up. The girls remained in high spirits on the second leg of their journey from Croydon to One Tower Bridge, despite some unexpected hills on the way. After a quick break for sustenance on arrival at One Tower Bridge, they scaled all 9 blocks (over 100 flights of stairs). By this point the sun was shining and the trio had found their stride. Climbing the Tower was the longest climb they undertook, but the views at the end made the journey worth it.
Charlotte said, "It was tough going but a very enjoyable day. Thank you to everyone for their fantastic support."
Undaunted, they continued on a further 5 miles from One Tower Bridge to Woodberry Down and walked up the 26 storey tower at Woodberry Down, completing all 'three peaks' in just under 10 hours, two hours short of their target time. Charlotte said, "It was tough going but a very enjoyable day. We were privileged to see some fantastic views and feel proud to have completed our challenge. Thank you to everyone for their fantastic support. So far we have raised a staggering £5,035.00. That's over double our target."
