As some of you may know, our friends over at Pinnacle Complete Office Solutions had created the ultimate Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, supporting Woody’s Lodge along with two other amazing Welsh charities: NSPCC Cymru and Tenovus Cancer Care! We can’t believe how time has flown, but the event is finally taking place next weekend!
Originally due to take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend back in 2020, however, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the event had to be postponed. Following a year of national uncertainty and months of unprecedented change, the team at Pinnacle have been working incredibly hard to re-launch their 2021 charity challenge! The challenge will now go ahead virtually next weekend!
What’s the Three Peaks at Home Challenge?
Taking place next weekend – Friday, 25 June and Sunday, 27 June – the participants will virtually tackle the distance of the Three Peaks, whether they walk, cycle or run! You can take on the challenge individually, as a family or in small groups (restrictions allowing), all we ask is that you have fun and update us with your progress throughout the weekend!
We’ll update you with any photos and news over on our Facebook page next weekend.

What does your donation do at Woody’s?
Woody’s Lodge is a meeting place for those who’ve served in the Armed Forces or Emergency Services. At Woody’s Lodge, you will find expert advice & support, friendship & camaraderie as well as like-minded people who have similar experiences to you. With locations in North, West and South Wales, we provide Armed Forces support across Wales. We’re also on hand to help the families and loved ones of those who have served. It can take some time and compromising to re-adjust to normal life after active service has ended. Our meeting space provides a neutral space to help veterans and their families back on track.
Woody’s Lodge can help with Housing & Support, Benefits, Pensions & Finance, Agency & NHS Referrals and Socialising & Friends. From one-to-one assistance with form-filling with a brew & a biscuit to Family Days and activities, our team are on-hand to ensure you receive the help and support that you need.
Take a look at our Veteran’s Stories here to find out more about the people we’ve helped here at Woody’s.
If you’re a friend or family of a veteran or an Emergency Services leaver and are looking for some help and support through veteran’s family services or perhaps the chance to socialise with others who’ve had a similar experience to yourself, Woody’s Lodge is here to help. If you’re struggling with your mental health, such as stress or struggling to sleep, we have some information and contact information on our Health Referrals page here.
