This Yorkshire Day Carnegie winger Oli Goss will be climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks to raise money for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre and Bowel Cancer UK.

On 1st August, Goss will be joining a team of 20 to climb the three highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales, Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent, with the aim of raising £10,000 for charity. 
 
The team are hoping to conquer the peaks to honour Goss’ close family friend Kate Morfill, who recently lost her battle with Cancer. The challenge was set up in her memory of her support of two charities and to continue the positive work she did in fundraising for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre and Bowel Cancer UK.
 
Speaking about the fundraising challenge Goss said: “This will be the first time I have attempted the Yorkshire Three Peaks and I am looking forward to the challenge.  Kate was a colleague of my partners and she sadly lost her battle with cancer and her colleagues decided to take this on in her memory.  My partner gave birth to our child six weeks ago and so is unable to do the challenge as she had hoped, so I have volunteered to step into her place and give it a go.  We would be grateful if Yorkshire Carnegie supporters could get behind us by donating whatever they can to help us honour Kate’s memory by raising money for these two fantastic charities which were close to her heart.”
