PARENTS, staff and a governor from a Bury St Edmunds school have raised thousands of pounds for charity after climbing 11,178 feet.

The South Lee School team collected £2,958.75 by conquering the Three Peaks Challenge in 24 hours.

The money will be divided between The Alzheimer’s Society and East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. The group set off from Ravenwood Hall hotel, in Rougham, on Friday and started with the 4,409ft Ben Nevis. They then completed Scarfell Pike, in the Lake District, and finally the 3,560ft Snowdon, in Wales.

Craig Jarvis, the proprietor of Ravenwood Hall, said: “It was a fantastic training platform for the Amazon Jungle marathon I’m competing in on October 6 to raise money for the Ravenwood Children’s Trust.”
