A GROUP of clients, friends and family from a health studio conquered Wales, England and Scotland's highest mountains over three days for a good cause.

The team from JS-PT Health Studio, based in Connah's Quay and Mold, took on Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon for a charity close to one of the group's hearts.

Julie Lowe, who took part, lost her father to Central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma in 2017.

She said: "As I watched him suffer without complaining, I was struck by how awful this illness was and how helpless I felt in so many ways. 

"I want to challenge myself to do the three peaks in honour of my dad's extraordinary bravery in the face of the cruelest illness and support vital research into the causes and treatments of brain tumours."

The Leader:

The group has raised nearly £1,000 for the Brain Tumour Research charity after completing the challenge over a recent weekend.

It included 27miles of walking, over 75,000 steps and 900miles of driving.

Jack Sullivan, owner of JS-PT Health Studio, said: "We decided to do it over three days to make it more enjoyable and to enjoy the whole experience.

The Leader:

"We always put on different events and social meetings for our clients to enjoy and this was one of the bigger ones. It’s not on everyone's to-do list, but it had been for a few of our group and after a two-year wait, we were keen to get it ticked off right before our eighth birthday as a company.

"Clients joined in on the Saturday and also on the Sunday so each day the group was getting larger which was great."

The Leader:

He added: "It doesn’t matter whether it is climbing up mountains or even completing a workout in the studio - it’s just good to see people wanting to do more and push themselves.

"We are proud of all of our clients as they always push themselves in and out of the studio."
