Goathland’s Peak Performance

Goathland Plough Stots

Late on 20th September 2019, Goathland Plough Stots Longsword dancers set out on their ‘Folky Three Peaks’ challenge – with a plan to dance on the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon.  And all within 24 hours!  And they hoped to raise £1,000 for the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG).

They managed it within 23 hours and 48 minutes and raised over £8,000 for the Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia  Group! Alongside another £150 to sponsor an end of treatment bell.
