King’s Lynn estates manager’s charity climb for Help for Heroes

A 51-year-old estates officer has raised more than �700 for Help for Heroes by climbing Ben Nevis.

Terry Hanson, who works for Freebridge Community Housing, climbed the UK's highest mountain in just two hours and 30 minutes.

He prepared with a strict training regime, based on principles he learned during his time in the Navy.

'The trek itself was very demanding and I did not stop until I reached the summit where I was privileged to view some fantastic scenery,' said Terry. 'At 4406ft on a crystal clear day I could see for miles.

'The charity is very close to my heart and during my visit to Ben Nevis, I visited the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge, around 10 miles from the mountain.

'I am on target to raise around �1000 in total and would like to thank all my friends, family and Freebridge colleagues who helped me to raise such a great amount of money.'
