Peaking nicely at 50

Most people celebrate their 50th with a party. Lauren Kraftman signed up to climb 3 mountains in 24 hours.

Ms Kraftman will scale Ben Nevis in Scotland, Snowdon in Wales and Scafell Pike in England at the end of the month in aid of Jewish Care's Rela Goldhill Lodge in Golders Green, where she is a volunteer co-ordinator. She has already raised close to £5,000 in sponsorship via her JustGiving page.

"When I told my kids I wanted to do some challenges, my daughter booked us on to the Three Peaks Challenge as a gift. But I am also doing a half-marathon with my brother in September and am planning to do a boot camp with my very supportive husband in October. I wanted to raise money for Rela because it provides residential care for adults with physical disabilities and sensory impairments."
