A West Norfolk fundraiser chose to aim for the top when he raised money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Luke Byron chose to take on the country’s highest mountain when he headed for Ben Nevis earlier this month.

He has so far raised more than £600 for the charity.

Mr Byron, 37, was supported during the challenge by three firends, Paul Eady, Mike Davies and Will Border, and completed the 4,412ft climb in eight hours.

“The support for my climb has been overwhelming. I still think people think it’s funny for me to do something physical like this,” said Mr Byron.

Last year he climbed the 3,209 ft summit of Scafell Pike in Cumbria.

He raised more than £800 for Shine, which supports those affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus – water on the brain.

Mr Byron, who works at the College of West Anglia, and is married with two daughters, was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 12  and said he had wanted to give something back because of the care he received both at the time and subsequently.

His Justgiving page remains open at www.justiving.com/Luke-Byron1/ and donations are welcome.
