Amanda Holden takes on big challenge for Global’s Make Some Noise

Heart Breakfast’s Amanda Holden is to attempt the 3 Peaks Challenge in aid of Charity.

She will take on the task, which will see her climbing the highest mountains of Wales, England and Scotland within 24 hours, to help raise funds for Global’s Make Some Noise.

It takes place on Thursday 6 of October, when Amanda begins by climbing Wales’ highest mountain, Snowdon. She will then scale England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike, before tackling Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in Scotland and in the UK.

The trek involves climbing 10,476 feet and travelling 706 miles in 24 hours as she faces an overnight ascent of Ben Nevis, aiming to reach the summit of the UK’s highest peak, which stands at 4,413 feet above sea level, before the end of the Heart Breakfast show on Friday 7 October.

Amanda will be joined by a team of ‘Mandy’s Mountaineers’ – a group of charity service users who are supported by some of the small charities being helped by Global’s Make Some Noise this year.

Cotswold Outdoor have teamed up with Global’s Make Some Noise to support Amanda’s challenge as lead partners.

Amanda says: “Here we go! I’m ditching my heels for hiking boots and scaling the 3 Peaks!

“All in aid of Global’s Make Some Noise, I’m attempting The 3 Peaks Challenge in 24 hours next month. I’m looking forward to it but as I look at my map and compass I’m wondering just what I’ve signed up for!

“I’ll be supported by a fantastic team on the journey and I’m totally up for giving this challenge my all. We’re all ready to raise as much money as possible for these incredible charities to help make some noise for the work that they do!

“And yes… I will be packing a pair of heels and a pair of eyelashes for the photo finish!”
