FOURTEEN novice walkers from Southampton took on the challenge of climbing three peaks and completed the gruelling journey.

It was in aid of young girl Evie Elliott, who is one of two children in the world with her specific type of duplicate mosaicism syndrome, which means she suffers with heart defects, poor eyesight, poor muscle tone, incontinence issues, constipation, anxiety, developmental delay and sensitivity to infections.

The walkers, including Evie's parents Leanne and Sam Elliott, started their walk up the mountains at Ben Nevis at 5.25pm on Monday July 1, then Scarfell, and completed the challenge at Snowden by 5.17pm on Monday July 2.

They aim to raise £10K towards future medical help for Evie.
