A ten-year-old girl has taken on and completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
Lorna Shepherd of Threshfield School put on her walking boots
and completed the 26-mile route of Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough in 11 hours, despite inclement weather, to raise £3,000 for childrens' cancer charity Candlelight.
She decided to take on the challenge after a friend had to undergo a bone marrow transplant having developed leukaemia.
Ranger service manager at the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority Alan Hulme visited Lorna at her school to present her with a medal and honourary membership of the Friends of the Three Peaks.
Mr Hulme commented: "Lorna is one of the youngest that we have heard about to complete the Three Peaks Challenge and we thought it was a real achievement that shouldn't go unrewarded."
Friends of the Three Peaks was formed last year and aims to conserve the landscape around the trio of mountains.
