A father and son have put their best feet forward to raise money for the East Lancashire Hospice.

Nick Worden and son Arron, from Huncoat, took on the challenge of completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks, and in doing so, raised more than £600 for the charity.

Finishing in nine hours and 10 minutes (two hours and 40 minutes less than the recommended 12 hours), the duo found the walk quite gruelling, with the Whernside and Ingleborough peaks proving the toughest.

Mr Worden said: "The hardest parts were coming down Whernside and then going over Ingleborough. The weather was fine at the bottom but at the top it was blowing a gale and raining.

"Arron found it easier than me; he flew round and even had to wait for me a few times."

And if that wasn't enough, along with a group of punters, Mr Worden had his head shaved at The Railway Pub in Huncoat on August 11, again, raising vital funds for the Hospice.

He added: "Altogether we raised about £620."

Income Generation Manager from the hospice, Sharon Crymble said: "It has been a real pleasure to hear how a host of people from The Railway Pub got involved with the head shave to raise money for the hospice, and we're thankful to them all.

"Nick and Arron's challenge has also helped towards a fantastic total."
