The fundraiser saw Ian Chapman raise £1,320.00 for Pendleside Hospice as he scaled Pendle Hill, Weets Hill, Boulsworth Hill, and Hameldon Hill back-to-back in half a day, with the collective height of the four peaks mirroring the year in which Burnley Football Club was founded - 1882.

"I am in awe at what [Pendleside Hospice] do for our local community and further afield," said Ian on Facebook. "I am just doing my bit by raising awareness and, as you can see, collectively we have become many and have made a difference."
