As part of The Walters Group, Locksonline are sending a team of four to take part in the Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge with the aim of raising money, through sponsorship, for the Ty Hafan charity.
The Tŷ Hafan Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge takes place on 23rd June 2012. The challenge begins at 4:00am in North Wales when we will take on Snowdon, Wales' highest peak. We will then head to Mid Wales to tackle the mighty Cadair Idris, and then to Pen-y-fan in the South to complete the challenge in approximately 15 hours.
Tŷ Hafan are a charity who provide comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families. For more information about Tŷ Hafan, visit the Tŷ Hafan website.

Snowdon (Welsh: Yr Wyddfa) is the highest mountain in Wales, at an altitude of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside Scotland. It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri) in Gwynedd, and has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain". It is designated as a national nature reserve for its rare flora and fauna.
Cadair Idris or Cader Idris is a mountain in Gwynedd, Wales, which lies at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park. It has an elevation of 893 m (2,930 ft). The peak, which is one of the most popular in Wales for walkers and hikers, is composed largely of Ordovician igneous rocks, with classic glacial erosion features such as cwms, moraines, striated rocks, and roches moutonnées.
Pen y Fan is the highest peak in South Wales and southern Britain, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres (2,907 ft) above sea-level, it is also the highest peak in Britain south of the Snowdonia mountain range. The twin summits of Pen y Fan and Corn Du were formerly referred to as Cadair Arthur or 'Arthur's Seat'.
