Kate embarks on Three Peaks Challenge with team Wu

Kate+from+Lotus+UK

Kate McWilliams from Lotus UK has been dusting off her walking boots to prepare for the Three Peaks Challenge which involves climbing the highest peak in Scotland, Ben Nevis, the highest peak in England, Scafell Pike, and the highest peak in Wales, Snowdon, in just 24 hours.

Kate will be joining a ten-strong team from Wendy Wu Tours to raise funds for Just a Drop, the international water-aid charity which aims to reduce child mortality caused through poor sanitation and unsafe water.

Working with local partners - at a grassroots level – Just a Drop provides a local, clean water supply through appropriate engineering solutions to some of the poorest communities in the world.

The work Just a Drop supports includes safe sanitation and the construction of wells, boreholes, pipelines, hand pumps, sand dams and latrines, as well as the establishment of WASH (Water and Sanitation Hygiene) education programmes which run alongside the projects.

The team, aptly called Wu Three Peaks, will collectively tackle over 34,700m of uphill ascent in what is so far the biggest challenge each of the team has undertaken individually and the first team challenge for team WU in the hope to tempt colleagues and friends to dig deep for their efforts.

Kate’s training regime is in full swing and now the sun’s out, she plans to up her game with ambitious lunchtime runs.

To support Kate, please visit her dedicated fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/Kate-McWilliams1/

To follow the teams progress on Twitter, hash tag #Wu3Peaks has been created.
