A hike up the highest mountain in Wales raised thousands of pounds for a Wirral charity supporting children with cerebral palsy.

A team of fundraisers from Stick 'n' Step reached the 1,085-metre high summit of Mount Snowdon in time to see the sunrise, after a nine-mile hike.

Their efforts raised more than £5,700 for the charity, which provides children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.

More than 100 children from across the region usually attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.

Corporate Fundraiser at Stick 'n' Step, Joanne Fowler, who completed the hike as part of her 50th birthday celebrations, said: "This was an incredible experience. It was hard work but so worth it when we all got to the top!

"We are very grateful to everyone who supported us.
