The charity supports young homeless people with both short and long-term solutions by supplying hostels and night stops in order to work towards setting young people up for a financially and emotionally stable future.

The challenge involves successfully climbing Ben Nevis, Scafel Pike and Mount Snowdon in 24 hours.

The five boys; Maximus Hooper, 16, William Grovestock, 15, Thomas Bone,16, Erik Hooper, 14 and Jack Brenson, 15, will go on a training weekend in March to learn some map and compass skills. To sponsor them go to www.paypal.me/pools/c/8lX9aTR9fv
