An estate agent who climbed Mount Snowdon to raise funds for Open Door St Albans has presented the charity with a cheque for more than £2,000. 

David Murray and his fellow director of Frost's St Albans, Dan Kirk, reached the summit in three hours and 48 minutes on October 9.  

They continued to fundraise on their return, achieving a grand total of £2,403, which David presented to David Lane, chair of Open Door St Albans. 

Much of the funds raised will go towards the charity’s winter beds project, which is providing six extra self-contained sleeper cabins for rough sleepers in St Albans this winter. 

The two estate agents have a long-standing relationship with Open Door, having previously raised £1,932 for the charity by sleeping rough in 2018. 

Since its inception in 1993, Open Door has supported over 7,000 people who have experienced homelessness and been at risk of sleeping rough.

Dan said: “We are delighted to have raised a significant amount of money for such a deserving charity that does so much amazing work in our local area to support homeless people.
