Ain't no mountain high enough for two King's Lynn brothers who have climbed 10,000ft in memory of their father who died suddenly of motor neurone disease.
Mark and Dan Gay, 39 and 34, completed the Three Peaks Challenge to raise more than £8,000 for charities The Norfolk Hospice and Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).
Their father, former King's Lynn FC assistant manager Ellis Gay, died in January this year after only being diagnosed with MND the previous month.
The family wanted to raise money for the charities which helped provide valuable support during their most difficult times.
The brothers climbed the three highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales on June 25 but the challenge was not without its mishaps.

Mark said: 'It was really hard going, the weather was horrendous, just torrential rain. But to raise well over £8,000 is phenomenal, I can't thank everybody enough.'
