A group of gym members from Blast Men’s Training on Virginia Street are to undertake the gruelling National Three Peaks Challenge for charity in July.
Team Madmen plan to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in less than 24 hours on 15 and 16 July.
Organiser Paul Blane will be joined by Phil Parkes, Martyn Farrell, Tom Iddon, Mark Poole, Michael Parkes, Michael Sutton, Richard Mcnally and Phil Clinton.
The group will raise money for Queenscourt Hospice and The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation.
Queenscourt Hospice is a local charity that provides support for the people of West Lancs, Southport and Formby, caring for patients with serious illnesses, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life at each new stage.
The Darby Rimmer MND foundation was set up by former Liverpool FC football Stephen Darby with close friend, British Forces veteran Chris Rimmer to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease while providing support and research funding.
No stranger to giving back, Blast Men’s Training previously raised £878 for Queenscourt Hospice during a sponsored training session in December.
