A WINSFORD charity working for people with neuromuscular disorders has been handed more than £1,000 by mountaineers.
The £1,270 was raised by a team from tourism board Visit Chester & Chester (VCC) during a successful Three Peaks Challenge.
Chief executive Chris Brown led a team of 12 to conquer the UK’s three highest peaks – Ben Nevis in Scotland (1,344m), Scafell Pike in the Lake District (978m) and Snowdon in Wales (1,085m) – within 24 hours.
The proceeds have been handed over to the NeuroMuscular Centre in Winsford, which is a unique centre providing practical and palliative services for people with muscular dystrophy.
VCC marketing manager Emma Tatlow commented: “We’re delighted to have been able to support charities that make such a difference to the lives of people in Chester and Cheshire.”
Donations were also made to the Mountain rescue teams in each of the Three Peaks areas.
