Villa Fan Takes 3 Peaks Challenge For Acorns

Congratulations to Villa fan and Vital Villa forum member Jameslees who has just completed the 3 Peaks Challenge in June in aid of Acorns Childrens Hospice.

The challenge was:
Ben Nevis (Scotland - 1344m)
Scafell Pike (England - 978m)
Snowdon (Wales - 1085m)

I feel tired just thinking about it!

James says on the
justgiving.com website:

As a Holte End season ticket holder I am proud that Aston Villa started a new trend of supporting local charities by donating their most prime piece of advertising space. By supporting these initiatives more clubs will hopefully follow suit and help change some of the negative perceptions surrounding the game that many enjoy playing and watching. It's a massive challenge but one that will hopefully be enjoyable.

Hello All,

Just to let you know I completed the 3 peaks and now extremley tired.

Total walking time was 13.5 hours and we drove/stopped for food 14.5 hours.

Thanks to those who sponsored me.
