Jonathan Prestage, aged 15, from Kent, hopes to raise sponsorship from the event to support the Vine Trust, a volunteering charity which aims to make a real difference for some of the poorest children and communities in the world.
He is planning go on a volunteering trip to Peru in 2017, with around 30 other students from his school. The purpose of the trip will be be to build and maintain homes for children who have been living on the streets, thus rescuing them from a dangerous and distressing situation. Sponsorship from the event will contribute to the costs of the trip.
Jonathan has taken part in the South Wales 3 Peaks Trial twice before, completing the Bronze Route in 2014 and the Silver Route, which he found quite a challenge in 2015’s conditions!
