A FAMILY will be scaling Snowdon to raise money for a charity close to their hearts.
Joe Lacks will be joined by his dad Godfrey, brothers Simon and Paul Douglas, and friends Eddie Morgan and Scott Emes, to take on the five hour hike on June 19.
The group will be tackling the mountain of a challenge to boost funds for mental health charity MIND after Joe was diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder in 2013.
He said: “I felt like I wanted to raise some awareness about mental health and for others not to suffer alone because getting the right help is part of getting better. So I did a bit of research and MIND was the charity for us.”
He added: “We’re all training and it’s going fine, I think we’re all more excited more then nervous, it’s something we’ve not done, especially for charity.”
The team hopes to raise a total of £500 and people can donate to the cause by visiting www.justgiving.com/joe-lacks or tex EBRU52 and the amount to 70700.
