Three Peaks charity challenge

Alumnus Matt Clark raises money for Macmillan

Alumnus Matt Clark (Seaford 2008 – 2013) is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support by completing the Three Peaks Challenge – but with difference.

Not only does the 29-year-old intend to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, he also plans to cycle between each mountain, a distance of 400 miles. On top of that, he hopes to complete the whole expedition in less than 48 hours on 13th and 14th June 2024.

Matt is an ecologist, and his love of the outdoors was partly inspired by his years at Seaford College. “I loved my time at Seaford. I was quite sporty and academic, and did a lot of outdoor activities like CCF,” he said.

One in two people will suffer from cancer at some point in their lives. Matt’s mum, aunty, granny and uncle have all had cancer, so Macmillan is close to his heart.

“Cancer affects nearly all families in some shape or form,” he said. “Some are lucky, and others aren’t. Macmillan gives people with cancer everything they’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are Macmillan’s worries. But without financial help, it can’t support everyone who needs it.”

Matt hopes to raise at least £1,500 for Macmillan and would be very grateful for any donations.

The Seaford community sends Matt the best luck for the expedition and his fundraising endeavours.
