A team from Witney who scaled the three highest peaks in England, Wales and Scotland in challenging conditions raised £8,000 for charities.

The group of eight walkers and two drivers, including members of Witney Rotary Club, climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 36 hours through high winds, torrential rain and snow.

The money raised has now been distributed to a number of good causes, including New Yatt Riding for the Disabled and Macmillan Cancer Relief.

The latest cheques, each for £1,000, have been handed over to Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance and the Rwanda Project at Witney's Henry Box School.

The combined age of the team was 569 years, including oldest member Francis Newenham, 74.

During the challenge the walkers finished their last peak, Snowdon, while the mountain was closed to other climbers because of severe weather conditions.

Over the coming months the funds not yet handed out will be allocated through the Rotary Club's charity work.
