It’s good luck to Daryl Mitchell from all at Worcestershire CCC as he participates from today until Sunday in the Three Peaks Challenge.

The long-serving Worcestershire opener will be attempting to climb to the summit of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon by Sunday afternoon.

All money raised will be split between two worthy causes in the Professional Cricketers’ Trust and the Tom Maynard Trust.

The Professional Cricketers’ Trust provides support to current and ex-players when they need it most, whether that is by way of funding for medical assistance, provision of specialist equipment or through emotional care.

The Tom Maynard Trust helps young sports people by educating them about the possible pitfalls of a career in professional sport as well as providing assistance with overseas placements and equipment.

Mitchell, the current chairman of the Professional Cricketers’ Association, has been given a helping hand by Kevin Sharp, Head of Player and Coaches Development at Blackfinch New Road,

He has donated to him a pair of the boots in which he has regularly trekked across the Himalayas each autumn.

Mitchell also took part in the PCA Bike Ride Three in 2017 which involved 360 miles in five days.
