Two intrepid youngsters have climbed Mount Snowdon to raise funds for sick children.

Molly Ross, six, and her four-year-old brother Charlie of Bonsall, joined their parents Lara and Ewen and one-year-old sister Florence to climb to the top of the highest mountain in Wales.

The youngsters did the trek in three hours and 15 minutes to raise money for Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity which grants wishes of a lifetime to seriously and terminally ill children.

The family set out to raise £100 but have nearly reached £800 through the generosity of family, friends and colleagues.

Lara said: “We are so proud of their determination to reach the summit and the speed in which they did it.

“They put their heads down, gritted their teeth when the cloud came down and were a true inspiration.”

She added: “Molly did a sterling job asking for sponsorship from her friends’ parents and after a cheeky tannoy announcement in the cafe at the summit explaining what we had done, Charlie collected a further £55 to a backdrop of congratulatory applause.”
