3 Peaks, 450 miles and a few sore body parts!!

After a few years break from madcap fund raising activity Richard Gardiner is going once more into the breach, and how!!

In September 2013 Richard is joining a merry (if slightly unhinged) band of landscape industry colleagues to complete the UK 3 Peaks Challenge but unlike normal people that get driven from peak to peak, Richard and his co-madmen will be cycling the 450 miles instead.

Of course it’s all in aid of charity and this time it’s “Perennial” the Gardener’s Royal Benevolent Society that helps those who work or have worked in horticulture and their families when they face adversity or need. click here for more information.
