Our annual trek returns for 2022!
Our long awaited annual trek returns and this year we're heading to Yorkshire to take on the 3 Peaks Challenge...
We took a break from trekking in 2020 and 2021 as lets face it, we didn't think a hike along the Quayside in a group of 6 would quite cut it for the thrill seekers among us, and so we're delighted to be launching our 2022 trekking challenge.
Whether you're a hiking pro or looking to challenge yourself, we'd love for you to join Team Sunshine on Friday 20th May as we head down to the Yorkshire Dales to take on Whernside (736 m or 2,415 ft), Ingleborough (723 m or 2,372 ft) and Pen-y-ghent (694 m or 2,277 ft). Expect to be on your feet for 12 hours so a good level of fitness is required with training walks advised to ensure our team summit all three peaks.
Every trekker will benefit from personal, one-to-one support with both training and fundraising tips, plus we will have numerous fundraising and collection opportunities from February onwards for those who need a fundraising boost.
Your registration fee and minimum fundraising target includes an expert guide plus minibus travel to and from the peaks. A negative lateral flow test is required within 48 hours of departure. Participants are welcome to make their own travel arrangements if preferred.
Places are limited and as we know you're all keen to get back to adventuring, we expect demand to be high. To secure your place, simply click below to register your details with our trusted trek provider, Adventure Northumberland.
Registration Fee: £40
Minimum Fundraising Target: £300

Tom took part in our 2019 National Three Peaks Challenge...
“You wouldn’t think standing in a -20 windchill on Ben Nevis, climbing Scafell Pike in the dark or summitting Snowdon in the drizzle (after about 2 hours sleep in a van) would be enjoyable, but completing the Three Peaks with the Sunshine Fund in 2019 was an amazing experience and an adventure I’ll never forget (for all the right reasons).
Luke, Tom and Robin, Muckle LLP
None of our team had done anything like this before, but the trip was so well planned and the Sunshine Fund gave lots of great advice and support which made our fundraising really easy. It’s testament to the Sunshine Fund that we spent most of the Trek laughing and smiling! The fact that we were raising money for such a great cause made it even better - I couldn’t recommend the experience or the charity enough."
