A daring women from Malpas will strip off and walk up the highest hill in the Clwydian range wearing just a bikini.
Alex Egan will join friends Olga Greyling, Maja Kenney and Nicola Kirby from Wrexham, in their swimwear to raise cash for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The brave ladies who are in their 40s are determined to raise more than £2,000 for the charity after losing loved ones to cancer.
Come rain or snow the intrepid group will trek up Moel Famau, which lies near the border between Flintshire and Denbighshire and stands at 1,818ft, on December 19.
Olga says Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity close to her heart after losing her cousin Ferne to the disease.
She said: “My cousin Ferne died at the age of 46 just months after finding out she had cancer of the kidney. She was so young and it was such a huge shock, especially to lose her so soon after she was diagnosed – just four months. It was so very sad but it’s made me want to raise money for Macmillan to help other people battling cancer.”
The bikini-clad adventurers will have a support team on hand during the hike to make sure they are safe and at the summit they will be given warm clothing and hot drinks.
While friends and family are supportive of the climb, Olga says that everybody thinks they are 'crazy' for taking on the madcap venture.
She said: “Walking up a mountain mid-December is absolutely bonkers – It’s a 1.5 mile hike to the summit which is really far in a bikini.
“We’re hoping it won’t take us longer than 40 minutes to complete. I am a little bit scared to be honest and everyone is saying we are absolutely crazy but we just feel it is such a good cause that it is worth us feeling a little bit of discomfort for half an hour or so if it means we can help Macmillan change someone’s life.”
However, the women are determined to raise vital cash, especially at Christmas time, as well as putting a smile on people’s faces.
The ladies are asking people to support them on the day by cheering them on from Moel Famau car park at 10am.
Olga said: “Ending the year on such a positive note, where we give something back is what the festive season is really about. We also hope that we will bring a smile to people as they cheer us on.”
