Pupils from Chorley House, a Form in Bolton School Boys’ Division, proved themselves resourceful in the face of Covid-19 turning their Chorley Three Peaks fundraiser into a Stair Climb Challenge. The three peaks are White Coppice, Great Hill and Winter Hill and, ordinarily, the total distance is 12 miles and the total ascent is 2080 feet, with the highest point being 1496 feet at the top of Winter Hill. 

Working on the principle that a flight of stairs is usually 12 or 13 steps, the boys worked out that they would need to climb 268 flights of stairs to complete the challenge. The challenge was differentiated, making it accessible to all ages and abilities, and it was down to the individual to choose how they would complete the challenge. The five levels were: 

Level 1 - 14 day challenge (20 flights of stairs, every day, for 14 days)

Level 2 - 7 day challenge (38 flights of stairs, every day, for 7 days)

Level 3 - 3 day challenge (90 flights of stairs, every day, for 3 days)

Level 4 - 1 day challenge (268 flights of stairs in one day)

Level 5 - Physically complete the Chorley 3 Peak Challenge 

The Form used the winter months to fundraise for the activity which they completed later in the year. A fantastic effort saw them complete the many versions of the event and an even better effort in raising a whopping £2607.50 for two charities, Cardiac Risk in the Young and Stroke Association.
