Bank managers set to climb three peaks


A bank manager and director are taking on the three peaks challenge to raise money for children’s charity Dreams Come True.

Paul Meredith, director of Eastbourne’s Lloyd’s Bank branch, and Richard Constantine, the bank manager, are aiming to climb Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scarfell Pike on in 24 hours on May 13 and 14.

Their goal is to raise £2, 000 for Dreams Come True, a national charity which fulfil dreams for children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions aged from two to 21.

From specially adapted trikes to swimming with dolphins, meeting a favourite sports hero to a once in a life time holiday, the charity tries to help fund once in a lifetime experiences for seriously ill youngsters.

The charity receives no government funding and relies on fund raisers to support its work.

Over the last few weeks Paul and Richard have been training in both Eastbourne and Hastings to ensure they are at their peak fitness and are able to climb the three mountains in England, Scotland and Wales.

They have also held a quiz night raising £450 for the charity and a dress down day and cake sales in the branch to support the fundraising.

The two men are nearing their £2,000 target but are calling on the people of Eastbourne to help them raise the final amount and smash through their target.

You can sponsor Paul and Richard through Virgin Money Giving, where the money will go directly to the charity.
