Scaling peaks for Project Zulu

Fundraising for Project Zulu across Somerset's six peaks.

Somerset has some beautiful hills, mounds and mumps offering expansive 360° views of the beautiful Somerset County and beyond. Six peaks in particular Brean Down, Brent Knoll, Burrow Mump, Crook Peak, Glastonbury Tor and Lollover Hill are about to become breath-taking in more than one way for Andrew Newton, a resident of Shipham in Somerset and medical doctor at Weston Hospital as he attempts to scale them all in just 24 hours. ‘The Somerset 360’ as the challenge has become known, involves riding a pushbike between the peaks and then climbing each consecutively in under a day; a total of 80 miles in the saddle and 20 miles of walking.

Why is Andrew undertaking this madness I hear you ask? For Project Zulu of course! Not only is Andrew organising the 28th May Shipham concert for this year’s PZ choir tour, he is rushing around on bike and foot help make the tour possible, now that’s what we call dedication! Andrew, we officially bestow Zulu Warrior status upon you for your heroic efforts!

At PZ we’re so impressed with Andrew’s energy levels and commitment to the charity and its aims, and we hope loads of people get behind him and sponsor this challenge by clicking here and making a donation. Every penny will help us to pay for the coach transporting the choir between towns and cities and from venue to venue to earn money for their schools.

On May 28th at 7:30pm the Project Zulu choir will be performing at Shipham Village Hall, showcasing their traditional Zulu songs, gospel songs and traditional dance. As well as taking on this challenge Andrew is also organising the Shipham concert. For concert info please click here.
