The team will be climbing the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales within 24 hours on Saturday 4 May. Each person in the team has chosen a charity close to their hearts and Alice Shingler chose SaTH Charity’s Neonatal Fund.

Alice decided to take on this arduous challenge as her nephew received treatment on the Neonatal ward at the Princess Royal Hospital. Alice was so impressed with the care given to the newborn she was inspired to train and take on the challenge, which includes climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and will finish with a hike up Yr Wyddfa (previously known as Snowdon).

Shirley Teece, Interim Neonatal Ward Manager, “We are grateful to Alice for fundraising for the Neonatal Unit, we get to know patients and their families very well. Every donation helps us to enhance patient and families experience of being on the unit.’’

Alice said of the challenge “I’m raising money for the Neonatal Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital, a cause close to our heart at this time as my nephew, Eddie, is being cared for there after being born 10 weeks early, weighing 2lbs 2oz.The neonatal unit provide the most exceptional medical care to babies born premature or sick and is also fantastic support to parents during this difficult time.”
