Shine Project takes on Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Last weekend five ambitious teenage girls, along with staff from The Shine Project and volunteers (and one encouraging boyfriend), set off on what turned out to be a 14 hour walk up and down the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, all to raise money for a volunteering trip to Zambia in August.
