Four women from Helmdon Acorns Pre-School have climbed to the summit of Ben Nevis raising around £1,000.

Staff members Liz Hart and Anne Somerton and committee members Sarah Owen and Laura Wilson took five hours to climb the mountain on Saturday, June 20, raising money for the Acorns and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Sarah said: “We trekked across pebbles, rocks, water and even snow to reach the summit and whilst the view was non-existent due to the low cloud, it didn’t dampen our sense of achievement as we celebrated with a champagne toast.”
