Two friends from the Skegness area have set themselves a challenge to scale the highest mountain in England for road safety charity Brake.

On Saturday, June 21, Carolyn Smith from Burgh Le Marsh will be walking to the top of Scafell with friend Daniel West to promote a charity close to her heart.

In 2008, Carolyn was involved in a car accident which damaged her spine and hips.

For the past six years she has had to adjust to a new way of living due to the pain.

Last year, however, Carolyn managed to climb Mount Snowden, also for Brake.

This year Carolyn has set herself the challenge of Scafell Pike, located in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria.

She will walk with best friend Daniel West, from Skegness and a group of other fundraisers from around the country.

Carolyn said: “I fundraise for Brake to try make a difference and promote road safety and also raise money for the charity. If I can chance one person’s attitude towards bad driving and save at least one life, then my own life will be complete.”
