Three family members raised £2,000 by climbing the highest mountain in Scotland.

Tracy and Jon Middleton, joined by Jake Jackson, all of Marshland St James, climbed Ben Nevis for the Alzheimer’s Society.

They undertook the challenge earlier this month in honour of Mrs Middleton’s mum Mary.

This was a massive achievement with our nanny Mary as inspiration,” said Emily Locks, daughter of Mrs Middleton and partner of Jake.

“Nanny Mary is in her final stages of dementia and was the motivation to the top of the mountain. 

“I couldn’t be prouder of them all and nanny Mary would be amazingly proud too.

“So far we have £2,000 for such a brilliant charity. We camped at the bottom of Ben Nevis and the team set off at 6am to start their trek to the summit. 

“My mum held a photo of nanny Mary all the way to the top as motivation.”
