Three cheers for the three peakers!

15 June 2013

City Kit Man Graham Duckworth and his fundraising group, Bantamstrek, would like to say a big 'thank you' to everyone who participated in this Saturday's (15 June 2013) Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in aid of the Bradford Burns Unit.


The fundraising event saw Bradford supporters and staff members come together for a sponsored walk across Yorkshire's famous Three Peaks mountains - Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent.


This Saturday's Bantamstrek Three Peak Challenge was the third in succession Graham has organised to help raise funds on behalf of the football club's chosen charity.


Along with Graham, fellow City staff member Mark Harrison and Bantams Club Shop manager Paul Stevens (pictured) also took part in the grueling trek.


Joining them on the walk were Mick and Samantha Duckworth, Garyth Davis, Fiona Rawlings, Tom Gibbons, Scott Ansell, Joe Szalkiewicz, Gavin Milligan and Scott and Robert Kent - many thanks to you all!


Graham would also like to thank helpers Glenn Baldwin and Richard Copley for their support and assistance to the walkers over the course of the trek.


The serial fundraiser, who has taken part in both previous Three Peak treks himself over the last two years, has also successfully completed two separate charity walks involving Lincoln City's Sincil Bank Stadium in the past.


Graham, who chose Lincoln given their obvious links to the tragic Valley Parade Fire Disaster in 1985, first walked from the Coral Windows Stadium to Sincil Bank before City's match with the Imps over the course of New Year's Eve and New Year's Day 2010/2011.


The Bantams staff member then did the reverse journey - Lincoln to Bradford - ahead of City's final home game of the 2011/2012 season against Swindon Town.


Both times Graham raised thousands of pounds in donations for the Burns Unit.


In total, coupled with some other fundraising events organised by Bantamstrek, the group have raised over £16,000 for the Burns Unit.
