Rachael’s Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge!

Rachael Booth is a freelance Arabic translator and a valued supporter of our charity. Before settling back in the UK, Rachael spent a number of years living and working abroad and has travelled extensively in the Middle East. In Bethlehem, she saw first-hand the need for hospice care for the sick and elderly.

Keen to do something to help raise funds for the charity, Rachael first offered to take part in a swimming challenge. However, the Covid-19 crisis has led to most organised charity events being cancelled.

Undeterred, Rachael has instead set her sights a little higher. On 22 August, she will be climbing Yorkshire’s Three Peaks – alone!

Rachael says:

‘I’ve completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks once before so I know what to expect. However, last time I was with a group and not climbing against the clock. This time is going to feel very different. I’ll be navigating, walking and climbing on my own and I aim to complete the challenge in 12 hours or less.’

‘I’ve spent a lot of time in the Middle East and have a real affinity for the region. I have seen how people suffer there due to conflict, upheaval and the lack of a social safety net. Building Bethlehem’s first ever hospice is a real and tangible target. It will provide genuine help for thousands of sick and elderly people. It’s a great cause and I hope I can do it justice!’

‘I know this is a difficult time for many. Please help me by donating whatever you can afford.’
