Colleagues tackle three peak challenge for Shooting Star and Princess Alice Hospice

This Is Local London: Great effort: The teams scaled the heights Great effort: The teams scaled the heights

A group of colleagues climbed three of the UK’s highest mountains in 24 hours to raise more than £10,000 for two charities.

In a test of stamina, strength and determination, a team from Paragon Community Housing Group, based in Walton, embarked on the three peaks challenge to raise money for Princess Alice Hospice and Shooting Star Chase.

Starting in Scotland, the team scaled Ben Nevis before travelling to the Lake District to reach the summit at Scafell Pike and then ended in Wales by climbing Mount Snowdon.

By completing the challenge, the Paragon Peakies team raised £10,823, which was split between the two charities.

Charles Ellis, who organised the event, said: "The idea of the three peaks challenge appealed to us as it is well known for being a real test of agility and stamina.

"We wanted a challenge that would bring together colleagues from different teams within the organisation who shared similar interests.

"It was also important to us to support charities that care for others in our local communities."
