Abi Lyall has conquered Scafell Pike on the second stage of her three peaks fundraising challenge for Aberdeen based Kenyan charity Gathimba Edwards Foundation.

An early start saw the intrepid cyclist and climber waking after only 4 hours sleep to begin her 5am ascent of the Lake District peak.

At an elevation of 978 metres (3,209 ft) above sea level, Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England.

After returning to Scafell after her successful climb, Abi set off on the 74 mile cycle journey to Preston, joined by Michael and Stephen.

Abi will be spending the night in the Lancashire city, home to the famous Preston North End football club, to get some well deserved rest before departing in the morning for the 120 mile cycle to Betws y Coed before climbing Mount Snowdon on Thursday.

Although she has already surpassed her £5,000 target, any further donations will be used to start a business for Esther and Emmanuel’s parents.
