The team from Luton has raised over £6000 for the charity that helps children in Luton living in poverty.

Thomas Nolan, of Machins Solicitors, said: “It was very tough but also very rewarding, we managed to complete the challenge in just over 24 hours, due to bad weather.

“We hiked Ben Nevis, then moved on to Scafell Pike and then Snowden.”

The groups were raising money for Level Trust’s Shoe Project, which aims to provide school shoes for children living in poverty.

Jane Malcolm, Level Trust director, said: “The group did a fantastic job in difficult conditions and on very little sleep, they were incredibly proud of their achievement and were left feeling amazing.

“The most humbling thing for me, was that they did this to help children living in Luton who can not afford shoes for school, the motto of the challenge being Walk For Shoes.

“It looks like we could have raised £12,000 which will nearly cover all of the Shoe Project’s costs next year.

“I can not wait to tell the children we help that people went through this for them,

“I think it will make them feel really valued.”
