Norfolk team will take on Three Peaks Challenge for BBC Sport Relief

A Norfolk charity fundraiser and his friends will be aiming to show there's no mountain too high when they take on the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of the BBC Sport Relief appeal.

Matt Brighton, 19, from Mulbarton, will be joined by eight friends to attempt the challenge of walking to the top of the three highest peaks in Britain – Snowdon in Wales, Scotland's Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike in England over the weekend of March 24-25, when the appeal is being held.

The team has called itself Bold, Brave and Beautiful and includes Mr Brighton, Billy Duffin, 19, Stevie White, 18, Danny White, 20, Lewis Batch, 18, Iain Sturges, 18, Ollie Johnson, 18, Connor Beavan, 19 and James Mathews-Hisket, 18.

Many of them know each through attending Hewett School in Norwich and Wymondham Rugby Club, where Mr Brighton plays in the second row.

The team are planning to start in Scotland and then work their way down the country, visiting Scafell Pike and then finishing with Snowdon.

The aim is to raise �1,000 for the charity, which helps the most deprived in the UK and overseas.
