A woman climbed Britain's highest mountain in aid of a charity close to her heart.

Gini Moore, from Sudbury, took on Ben Nevis last week to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Her 21-year-old nephew Bradley was diagnosed with the disease when he was only six months, who inspired her to conquer the mountain.

She said: “Bradley has had a hard time over the years with cystic fibrosis, he had to quit his university degree as he was in and out of hospital so much and he suffers from cystic fibrosis related diabetes.

“He also struggles to put on weight. I wanted to give something back to the charity that supports people like Bradley, by completing this challenge.

“l was pushed to my limits completing this challenge both mentally and physically but all in all it was a great experience to be a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Trekkers team.”

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening genetic condition which causes internal organs to become clogged with thick sticky mucus, leading to infections and inflammation of the lungs.
