TEENAGER Sadie Sawer aimed high with her first major fundraising challenge by climbing Mount Snowdon.

The 13-year-old schoolgirl was joined by mum Nicole, plus family friends Katie and Annabelle Jordan, for their nine-hour adventure.

Sadie, a pupil at Alderley Edge School for Girls, raised £1,067 which she donated to East Cheshire Hospice.

Nicole, from Wilmslow, said: "Sadie is kind and loving, though she isn't the most sporty and wanted to undertake a challenge for charity.

"It was an amazing experience and we chose one of the longest trails up the mountain and were lucky we picked a beautiful day."

Sadie and Nicole are both ambassadors for Dream Beams, a charity which supports children and their donation will help fund the Hospice's Childhood Bereavement Service.

Dream Beams also held an exclusive Ball at Merrydale Manor which raised £102,100 for the service.

The charity was inspired by Jemima and her sister Annabelle who wanted to help less fortunate children.

The main sponsors were Quanta Capital, Jordan Fishwick Exclusive and Vincentius. Donors also included Rolls-Royce Manchester, Boodles, Amazon, Mistral Gin, Coggles, Pinches Medical and Matalan.
