Three daring colleagues climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for a children's charity in Wraxall.

James Lake, Barry Richardson and Jack Walsh, from JL Corporate in Portishead, wanted to push themselves to the limit by climbing the highest mountain in Africa.

Their feat has raised more than £4,315 for Children's Hospice South West (CHSW).

James said: “Climbing Kilimanjaro was the most difficult week of our lives.

“But it was an unforgettable experience and we are extremely proud for reaching the summit of the tallest single standing mountain in the world and the money we have raised.

“We wanted to support a local charity and decided on CHSW.

“The work that CHSW do to support precious young lives is incredible as they not only help the children but also the parents and siblings.”
