A group of staff and friends from Douch Family Funeral Directors stepped up to a mountainous charity challenge and scaled Snowdon.

The 3,500ft peak was reached in 90-degree heat after a three-hour climb and raised more than £1,500 for Dorset Mind, the mental health charity.
Ten of them went up and 11 descended. Wendy Percey had taken the train to the top but made the four-hour walk down.

Emma Regan who organised the 8km ascent said, “We chose a very hot day which was incredibly tiring, but it allowed us to see Snowdon at its best.

“The views were astonishing and we were lucky because some people see very little from the mountain.

“Everyone found it hard and some were overcoming personal challenges and fear of heights but we all made it. Coming down was even harder but there was much elation when we arrived at the bottom. Importantly though, we raised money for Dorset Mind, which is our charity of the year.”
