A family from Chipping Sodbury took on a huge feat as they attempted to climb Snowdon to raise money for a charity that is close to their hearts.

Tanya Squire and her children Justin and Tiffany took on the 1085m climb with an aim of raising money for Women's Aid.

The trio are no newcomers to climbing mountains and had even tackled Pen Y Fan in order to warm up for the big climb at the weekend and despite the trail saying it would take them six hours, the family did it a bit faster.

"The kids did exceptionally well and the trail that said should take around 6 hours to do we did in 5," Tanya said.

"We had to conquer winds of 40-60 mph, snow and freezing cold temperatures and didn't complain once.

"The children are so proud they reached the top, the money they have raised and look forward to climbing mountains in the future.

"Next on the list is Scafell Pike."

The family decided to take on the challenge for Women's Aid after Tanya used the charity for support during a relationship that broke down due to domestic abuse.

Speaking before the climb, Tanya said: "It is really emotional because I want to try and teach them that no matter what experience they have in life, they can always be good and do the right things.

"I wanted to try and do something to raise money for the charity, it is one of those organisations that people do not like to talk about and we wanted to raise awareness."

"It is a brilliant charity and they provide a voice and reassure you there is someone there to help you through things."

Women's Aid is a charity that works to end domestic violence against women and children.

The family raised an amazing £325 for the climb, with their donation page still open for contributions here.
