Now in its fifth year the popular Three Peaks Challenge has been launched with help from Arriva Buses and the lovable Rennie Bear.

Organised by Rennie Grove Hospice Care to raise funds, the walk, which will take place on Sunday September 15, starts at Whiteleaf Cross in Monks Risborough, carries on to Coombe Hill in Ellesborough and finishes in Ivinghoe.

Arriva donates 10 double decker buses and many drivers free of charge to ferry passengers between peaks if they do not want to walk them all.

Rennie Grove director of fundraising Gillian Barnett said: “We couldn’t host this without Arriva’s amazing support. Their drivers voluntarily transport walkers back to their cars all day long and their cheery manner really adds to the atmosphere of the event.”
