Walk­ers all set for Ben Ne­vis climb

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK&WORLD UPDATE -

A TEAM of intrepid walk­ers are set to take on high­est peak in the Bri­tish Isles to­mor­row to raise cash for wounded ser­vice per­son­nel.

The six-strong group – five of whom are from Peter­bor­ough – will climb Ben Ne­vis in Scot­land. They have al­ready raised more than £3,000 for Help for He­roes, a char­ity they chose as four of the group are for­mer ser­vice­men.

Ja­son Os­borne (29), of Wil­low­brook Drive, Coates, left the Royal Ar­tillery in 200 . He said: “We’ve done quite a lot of train­ing for it but we haven’t climbed any hills, as there aren’t any around here.

“We are do­ing the more ar­du­ous trip and they are say­ing it will take us 10 hours to com­plete. We are re­ally look­ing for­ward to it but not the drive up, which is 440 miles.”
