The Principle Trust is a Yorkshire-based Children’s Charity supporting underprivileged, disadvantaged, and disabled children through the provision of free holidays and respite breaks. The Trust supports children who for example have life threatening illnesses, have a disability, struggle with mental health, live in poverty, have experienced abuse, and have come from a life of crime.

Since the pandemic began, the charity began fundraising to send key workers and their children on a free holiday at one of their five holiday homes.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks route is 24 miles (38.6km) and includes 1585m (5200ft) of ascent. The challenge is welcome to all who are willing and will be free providing £200 is raised. 

The Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge will support the charity and 100% of every £1 raised from the challenge will go directly towards the cause.
