MEMBERS of a football club are taking on a different challenge -a mountain trek in aid of injured service personnel.
White Hart FC will be swapping their football boots for climbing boots as they scale Ben Nevis - the highest peak in the British Isles.
On May 28 25 members of the Askern club will attempt to scale the 4,409 ft peak in the hope of raising £10,000 for Help for Heroes.
Wes Fox, White Hart FC manager, said: “There are a couple people associated with the team that are ex-forces, so the charity is a personal choice for many of us.
“Darren Hancock, one of the lads, is ex-forces and he’s told us some of the awful things he saw in active service. You just can’t imagine it.”
A charity football match is also taking place, with injured Bessacarr soldier Ben Parkinson presenting a trophy to the winning team.
