Two technicians from Lancaster University's Physics Department have set themselves an extreme challenge for charity - to climb the three highest mountains in Britain within three days.

Ian Mercer and John Statter also aim to cycle the 460 miles between Ben Nevis in Scotland (1344 metres), Scafell Pike in the Lake District (977m) and Snowdon in Wales (1085m).

The pair are appealing for sponsorship for the challenge this summer, which is to raise funds for the Coronary Care Appeal at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. They also need the loan of a camper van for five days to carry their support team as they cycle from one peak to the next.

Ian said: "Some of my family have been cared for in the hospital a few times so it's payback time."
