Kaira said: “We are participating in the National Three Peaks challenge on Saturday, July 9 and Sunday July 10.

“We wanted to challenge ourselves by attempting to complete the three peaks.

“This challenge involves walking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales within 24 hours and is not one for the faint hearted.

“We are raising money for MIND, which is a mental health charity, and one we hold close to our hearts.

“MIND is an incredibly important charity that offers advice and support to those experiencing a mental health problem or supporting a friend/family member that is suffering.”
