A TEAM of ambulance workers from across the region have completed the three peaks challenge in aid of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

The six walkers and two support drivers from the South Coast Ambulance Service set off from Fareham Fire Station for Scotland, where they tackled Ben Nevis, before heading to Cumbria where they scaled Scafell Pike, and finally conquered Snowden in north Wales.

The team, SE 24, was led by Ross Smith, who said: ‘It was an amazing experience and one our team SE 24 will never forget.’

Chief executive for the air ambulance, John Perry said: ‘We always appreciate the effort people go to to raise money for the air ambulance, and it is wonderful to see a local ambulance station pulling together for us.

‘We rely solely on the generosity of the public to continue flying and saving lives, therefore we are very thankful for all of their efforts.’
