From the epic Yorkshire Three Peak challenge to a gentler One Peak event, the charity is offering a variety of guide-led treks on June 12 h to suit novices through to seasoned trekkers.

Bluebell Wood, based in North Anston, is also offering the use of specialist wheelchairs to make the challenges more accessible.

The Yorkshire Three Peak challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, covering 24 miles in the process.
