His family and friends, known as Charlie’s Angels, have been fundraising since March to raise money for the charity.

The Lullaby Trust helps people that have been affected by SIDS and give bereavement support and helps put money into research for SIDS.

Carly Sinclair, Charlie’s aunty, is part of the team that took on the Three Peaks challenge at the weekend.

They climbed Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

Carly said: “My brother, John, joined us on the challenge and his wife, Fiona, has been organising all the events throughout the year.

“We completed all three peaks in 22 hours and 15 minutes. It was for us all the most challenging but most amazing experience of our lives, it was brilliant and it was great doing it for such a worthy charity and in Charlie’s name.

“We smashed the time thanks to a great company, Maximum Adventure, their guides really kept us on track and pushed us to the end.

“We could not have wanted for a better team, we worked great as a team from the beginning to the end.

“And to top it off, the weather was lovely, the best the guides had seen all year, we all said that was down to Charlie looking down on us.

“We wanted to thank everyone that has donated, it gave us all the push we needed to complete the challenge.”

Charlie’s Angels also held a fundraising night, a charity golf day and a summer event to raise money for the charity.
