A group of students have managed to raise £1,000 for a hospice after putting on their walking gear
and completing the Yorkshire three peaks challenge.
The 12 youngsters from King Edward VI College in Stourbridge took on Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-Y-Ghent to raise cash for the Mary Stevens Hospice in the town, the Stourbridge News reports.
Praising the efforts of the students, event leader Jan Syska said: "It was a real challenge for all of them and a great experience, especially for those with little hiking practice."
The students had used the nearby Stourport Canal and the Clent Hills for training ahead of the event.
Walkers in the West Midlands can also enjoy hillwalking in places like the Lickey Hills on the edge of Birmingham, Kinver Edge and the Malvern Hills.
The highest point in the region is where Herefordshire borders Wales, at the 2,306 ft summit of Black Mountain.
