A care assistant at a Suffolk residential home has raised more than £1,300 for dementia research by climbing Yorkshire’s three highest peaks.
Kieran Wilding, who has worked at Bucklesham Grange Care Home, on Bucklesham Road, for almost two years took on Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough with his dad.
The gruelling route amounted to almost 40km of walking, with heights reaching up to 2,415ft.
Mr Wilding said: “It was a beautiful day and worth the pain of not being able to feel my legs for a few days.
“Knowing that the money is going to Alzheimer’s Research UK made the challenge very rewarding.”
Daniel Rowark, general manager at Bucklesham Grange Care Home, said: “Kieran not only shows dedication to the residents in the home, he has now demonstrated commitment and dedication to a fantastic cause.”
