3 peaks for Clydesdale RDA

CARLUKE businessman Scott Warren reached new heights in a recent challenge. In fact, he reached the summit of three mountains in one day!

The whole exercise was to benefit Clydesdale Riding for the Disabled Association and apart from completing the challenge for personal pride, Clydesdale RDA will be better off by £4,192.86.

The Three Peaks challenge involved climbing Ben Nevis, Scaffel Pike and Snowden in a 24 hour period.

It also meant driving 900 miles between mountains. Scott and three Round Table friends completed it in 22 hours 53 minutes, with 9 hours 42 minutes on the mountains themselves.

Scott wanted to raise money for Clydesdale RDA.

He and his wife Jan have a 14-year-old son Millar who is autistic. He was a pupil at Victoria Park School eight years ago when he was first taken to the Riding for the Disabled centre, and now it is one of the few things in the world that he clearly enjoys.
