Nick's three-mendous Pendle Hill challenge for Burnley school

A Burnley school worker hit the heights to raise money in memory of a former pupil when he ascended and descended Pendle Hill three times in under three hours.

Holly Grove School family support manager Nick Barret completed his challenge in two hours and 23 minutes and managed to raise a fantastic £1,059 plus gift aid towards the Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund.

Nick's challenge coincided with what would have been former pupil Georgia's 21st birthday.

The Georgia Fourie Butterfly Fund was set up in 2009 memory of a pupil who died after many years of ill health.

The money will help to to buy resources for school to support the "Catch up" campaign as a lot of pupils are particularly vulnerable with the amount of school they have missed.

Georgia's legacy lives on through the charity and has funded residential trips to Blackpool, holiday clubs and bought vital resources for school.
