A father and son who enjoy the great outdoors hope to raise money and awareness for testicular cancer by tackling Britain's highest mountain.
Stephen Hall, 50, and Callum Hall, 16, from Rippingall Close, Aylsham, will be part of a group of 80 people walking up Ben Nevis, in Scotland, alongside former Norwich City and Celtic player John Hartson later this month.
The BraveHart Challenge 2013, which is in its third year, will be taking place on July 13 and will raise money for the John Hartson Foundation.
It was set up by the ex-professional footballer, who was treated for testicular cancer in 2009 and has since recovered.
Mr Hall, who works for Barnwell Printers, in Aylsham, decided to do the 1,344m-high climb for his 50th birthday after seeing an advert for the challenge in John Hartson's autobiography.

He said: 'It is important to raise awareness and give something back. It makes it more special that Callum wanted to do it too.'
The book was donated by the player for an auction of promises for the Aylsham High School year 11 leavers' prom, organised by Mr Hall's son in February.

Mr Hall, an assistant Scout leader in Buxton, said: 'The only hill we've climbed with the Scouts is Beeston Bump. We don't really know what to expect.'
The father and son have been practising for the challenge on the beaches around Cromer and Sheringham and expect to raise £1,000 for the charity.
Mr Hall has been a lifelong fan of Celtic because his mother's family lived in Glasgow. His son is also a supporter of the club.
