Bus firm Arriva has helped to launch the Rennie Grove Hospice Care Chilterns Three Peaks Challenge.

Arriva provides buses to transport participant between peaks during the walking challenge being held on Sunday, September 14.

Fundraisers are challenged to take on a five, nine or 18-mile route through the beautiful Chiltern Hills.

Ten Arriva drivers will be giving up their time to help the event to run smoothly, along with two engineers who have agreed to be on stand-by in case there are any transport problems.

Arriva duty manager David Chapman said: “It’s great to see people doing something for such a good cause. Everyone is very grateful for the transport services we provide on the day, there’s a really friendly atmosphere and we very much enjoy being involved.”

Senior events fundraiser at Rennie Grove Hospice Care Gemma Martin said: “We’re extremely grateful to Arriva for supporting us again this year.”

Last year the event raised more than £30,000 - enough to fund a nurse for a year - with more than 550 people taking part.

Registration for the event costs £20 for adults and £10 for children (anyone aged five to 16 years old), with under fives going free.
