A woman has completed the Three Peaks Challenge to raise more than £3,500 for the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.

Sophie Murray, along with her friend Lucy, climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon in an impressive 23 hours and three minutes on 5 September.

She took on the trek for the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals' Charity after her mum benefited from the Lynda Jackson service’s “massive support” during chemotherapy treatment, having been diagnosed with breast cancer last summer.

Now back on flatter ground, Sophie said: “It was so incredibly hard but an incredible and amazing experience reaching the top. I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has supported me and donated to the charity.

“It means so much to me and my mum and will make such an incredible difference. Thank you all again and the link is still open for any last-minute donations.”

With that last point in mind, you can add to Sophie’s fundraising total here:
