A group of work friends are taking on a charity event that will see them climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours, despite the fact none of them have ever done anything like it before.

The men, who all work for AutoTintz, Wheatley Hall Road, only decided they were going to take on national three peaks challenge a few weeks ago.

Some of AutoTintz customers will also be taking on Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon with them.

Brad Sables, who works for the graphic design company, said: “We have done a few charity events, and this time we wanted to do something a bit different.

“This is taking it to a different level, none of us have ever done anything like this before.

“None of us are particularly fit, so it’s going to be difficult, but we hope to raise £2000 for cancer research.

“It’s a charity which is close to my heart as my dad, Alan Sables, died of skin cancer in April 2013.”

The 15 men, who are aged between 20 and 39, will start the challenge on February 20 and finish on February 21.
