Staff at a West Wick-based mortgage broker have raised more than £1,300 by climbing three Somerset peaks in one day.

The 20-strong team at Key Solutions walked up Brean Down, Crook Peak and Brent Knoll to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

Georgia Sketchley, marketing executive at Key Solutions, said: 
“We managed to complete the challenge 
in five-and-a-half hours, which was quicker than our target of eight hours, so we were really pleased.

“The last of the peaks we climbed – Brent Knoll – was definitely the toughest and we were certainly out of breath by the time we reached the top, but it was great fun and fantastic to raise money for such a worthy cause.

“Charity work is very important to everyone at Key Solutions and Weston Hospicecare is particularly close to our hearts after it provided valuable care to the father of one of our colleagues.”
