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.”
