Adorable tot (three) is the pride of Pendle after conquering Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge

This adorable tot is Lily Barlow who can proudly say that, at the age of three, she has conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge.

Of course, as she is so young, it doesn't have a great deal of meaning for Lily at the moment. Nor does the fact that she has raised almost a whopping £1,000 for Pendleside Hospice.

But it certainly has plenty of meaning for Lily's proud parents, Paul and Rebecca and her big brother Ryan (18) who joined Lily, who attends Lakeview Nursery in Foulridge, on the challenge to walk the Three Peaks.

Rebecca said: "Lily calls it the mountain holiday.

"We didn't have very good weather but Lily wasn't phased at all by the rain and wind hitting our faces constantly, especially at Ingleborough which created some of the most memorable moments. Children don’t seem to mind bad weather so maybe we all need to change our attitudes to poorer weather conditions and be more open to going in the great outdoors.

“We try to go walking as often as we can and we wanted to do something special for a good cause so we decided to raise money for the hospice."
