Peak challenge for dementia

Have your say

A BARNSLEY woman is set to hike four of the largest peaks in the Lake District to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Teresa Howlett, from Wortley, hopes to raise over £1,000 by walking and climbing over 33 miles in three days.

The four peaks challenge takes on the highest peak in England, the Scafell Pike which stands at 3,209ft, as well as Skiddaw Mountain, Scafell and finally Helvellyn.

Teresa said: “Working for the Alzheimer’s Society in Barnsley highlights just how important services we provide are to people with dementia and their families locally.
