WALKERS from Barrington managed to dodge severe weather and complete the Three Peaks Walk in under 24 hours at the weekend.
The group of seven men did the walk, which comprises Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis, and Mount Snowden - the highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales respectively - to raise money for Barrington Village School.
Leader of the group Richard Bystry, said: "It went very well, and everyone had a good time.
"We were a bit worried about the weather to begin with, but we just missed the rain, and conditions for walking were actually perfect, grey and overcast, so there were no problems with sun stroke."
The group members are now beginning to collect their sponsorship money, which will be used to buy outdoor play equipment for the school.
Mr Bystry said: "We don't know how much we've raised yet because there's still a lot of money to come in.
