Lawyers are swapping courtroom gowns for walking jackets
as they take on the national Three Peaks Challenge in order to raise money for Help for Heroes.
Solicitors Kristina Stoddern, Laura Chalkley from Liverpool based firm Maxwell Hodge are to take on Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, along with company secretary Karen Ryan, Click Liverpool reports.
Ms Stoddern remarked: "For the challenge we will climb Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis and we are all really excited to see how fast we can do it," revealing the group has been receiving training from a group called Go Commando and recently completed an 11-hour training session on Snowdon.
Most attempts to complete the three peaks inside 24 hours happen around this time of year when the daylight hours are longest, to avoid people climbing or descending in the dark.
Help for Heroes will also be benefitting from the fundraising efforts of a church group based in Uttoxeter attempting the same feat, which was reported by the Uttoxeter Advertiser earlier this month.
