Teams from a well-known Huddersfield pub and brewery are to do the Yorkshire Three Peaks for charity while carrying 108 pints of beer … and people are welcome to join them.

Birkby-based Magic Rock Brewing and The Sportsman on St John’s Road in the town centre are doing the challenge to hopefully raise around £5,000 for Huddersfield-based charity Project Youth Cancer. The Sportsman has supported the charity, formerly known as the Laura Crane Trust, for the last 10 years.

The challenge means the teams will be lugging three casks of beer each containing 36 pints up and down the Yorkshire Three Peaks – Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside – on Tuesday, April 9.

Three teams will be tackling the peaks and Magic Rock has even produced three special Sportsman/Magic Rock collaboration beers for it which will be drunk by the teams when they get back to Huddersfield after completing the event.

The Sportsman is doing it to celebrate 15 years as a Beerhouses pub and its assistant manager, Ryan Robinson, said: “We work closely with many local and independent brewers so we decided it would be great to celebrate the pub’s birthday by doing something special with our brewing neighbours at Magic Rock.”

The three teams on the challenge will include staff from The Sportsman, Beerhouses and Magic Rock, but they would also love customers and friends from the pub and the brewery to join them.

People who step forward don’t have to do all Three Peaks and they don’t have to carry the casks, although they can if they want.

You can make a donation via the fundraising page or simply pop into The Sportsman to donate. Ryan is also donating all his tips to the cause.
