Charity's peak achievement.

FUNDRAISERS have climbed the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in aid of wounded soldiers.

Five men from Slaithwaite and two from Bradford took on the National Three Peaks Challenge for Help for Heroes.

They climbed Scafell Pike in the Lake District on July 1, followed by Ben Nevis the day after and Snowdon on July 3. Slaithwaite man Chris O'Prey, 51, was part of the seven-man team.

He said: "It went fantastically, though we did get wet here and there.

"We'd been training for 10 months.

Some of the lads didn't have much experience of hiking.

"We did the fundraiser for my friend Charlie Patterson's brother Simon who served for 22 years."
