SIX TIMES OPEN, a fundraising campaign led by fraternal twins, Jonathan and David Stretton-Downes, have been working hard to reach their goal of raising £100,000 in one year for the British Heart Foundation’s research into heart disease. They have taken on some weird and wacky challenges, but their latest challenge is guaranteed to blow the rest out of the water.
On April 7th, a select group of SIX TIMES OPEN challengers will be taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge – which will see them climbing the 3 highest peaks in Wales, Scotland and England, in under 24 hours. The challenger group is made up on men and women who have a personal connection to heart disease. If that wasn’t enough, they will also be getting their heads shaved at the highest point on Ben Nevis, a hair-raising 4412ft high.
Their hair-brained scheme is being supported by award winning hairdressers, Jones and Payne, who will be joining the SIX TIMES OPEN challengers on their trek up Ben Nevis.
The SIX TIMES OPEN campaign began in November 2016, while Jonathan was awaiting his sixth heart surgery. Since then, the brothers have raised a staggering £25,000 for the British Heart Foundation, which has gone into lifesaving research on heart disease.
The team are aiming to raise a further £3,000 in donations, taking their fundraising efforts to around £30,000. This isn’t all SIX TIMES OPEN has planned in, you can take a look at further fundraising events below:
