Recently, we were delighted to announce that Silkmen supporter Richard Ainley would be representing Macclesfield Town at this year's Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge in aid of Mind.
The twelve-hour hiking challenge presented a gruelling mental and physical test across one of Britain's wildest national parks.
Since then, the wider narrative has clearly been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result, this year's challenge has sadly had to be postponed.
That said, we have been liaising closely with the event organisers and Richard himself with regard to the plan going forward.
Richard remains unwavering in his commitment to complete this mammoth challenge in aid of such a poignant cause and as such, he will be taking on the daunting trek when it is rescheduled.
The new date has provisionally been set for July 2021 and we will be working alongside Richard over the course of the next twelve months to make sure that we raise as much money as we can to support the vital work that Mind carry out.
We will provide regular updates on this and reveal plenty of ways in which you can get involved along the way.
