Trio from Hughes in Wisbech take on Snowdon for Marie Curie

Three workers from an electrical goods retailer raised more than £1,000 for charity by climbing a mountain in memory of a colleague.
David Youngs, Stephen Holt and Adam Gray, who work at Hughes Electricals' Wisbech branch, hiked up Snowdon to raise funds for Marie Curie.
The trio took on the challenge in memory of former work colleague Jon Foley, who died three years ago.
They battled tough weather conditions with Mr Youngs and Mr Gray reaching the summit, though Mr Holt was forced to pull out with an injury.
Mr Youngs said: 'We started off in light drizzle at 8.30am and as we climbed the rain got heavier and heavier. There was bad news when we were half way up as we learned the weather conditions had led to the Summit Café being closed – so no cake and coffee for us.'
