FoodCycle Portsmouth’s hub co-ordinator is swapping serving three-course meals for climbing three peaks in three countries in 24 hours.

Megan Saunders will be one of six women donning their hiking boots and taking on the challenge this weekend.

The team will be climbing Snowden in Wales, Scafell Pike in England and Ben Nevis in Scotland to raise money for food project FoodCycle Portsmouth.

Pip, the FoodCycle mascot, will be accompanying the group on their trip.

Megan said: ‘Food poverty and food waste are big issues discussed in the media at the moment.

‘But I wanted to actually help do something about it.

‘FoodCycle Portsmouth is a great local project that works to tackle both these issues, and build a sense of community at the same time.

‘The project has been a great success so far and I hope that fundraising through undertaking the Three Peaks Challenge will allow it to continue helping those most in need in our community.’

FoodCycle Portsmouth aims to reduce food waste by collecting surplus food from supermarkets and volunteers use it to cook a nutritious three-course meal for vulnerable people in the community.
