To mark the 20th year of a Norfolk charity, 20 businesses have raised £1,000 each, with one climbing the UK's three highest mountains in three days.

A team of 26 from Hilltop Outdoor Centre set off from Sheringham to Scotland on Saturday, September 1 to raise funds for Nelsons Journey, which supports young people who have experienced the death of a special person in their life.

After scaling Ben Nevis in less than eight hours, the team drove to Scafell Pike in the Lake District, which they completed in five hours early the next morning.

The team then travelled to Mt Snowdon in Wales, which they reached the peak by 2pm and drove back to Norfolk, clocking 1259 miles driven all together and raising £5,000.

Oliver Read, Operations Director at Hilltop Outdoor Centre said 'I feel immensely proud of the whole Hilltop team for their commitment to this challenge, it has been an epic experience for everyone.'
