Staff at The Hengler’s Circus, in Glasgow, have embarked on a year long charity fundraiser, aiming to climb 12 munros in 12 months.
Pub manager Jo Small and her team already conquered four peaks and raised £1,341, before the winter break.
The challenge, to scale the munros (Scottish mountains over 3,000ft), began in September with Ben Lomond (3,195ft). The fundraisers are pictured at the summit.
In October, they completed Ben Lawers (3,982ft) and Beinn Ghlas (3,618ft), with Ben Chonzie (3,054ft) added to the list in November.
Jo was joined by shift manager Nicole Wilcox, team leader Cathy Wood, bar associates Shelley Mullen, Francesca Wilkinson and Rory Sosna, as well as kitchen associates Scott Buchanan and Eilidh MacDonald.
The challenge resumed in March with Schiehallion (3,553ft), then Beinn na Lap (3,067ft), Beinn Ime (3,316ft) and Beinn Narnairn (3,038ft) all in April. Meall nan Tarmachan (3,425ft) will be in May, while June will include Stob Dubh (3,043ft) and Stob Coire Raineach (Buachaille Etive Beag) (3,034ft), concluding with Ben Nevis in September, the UK’s highest mountain, at 4,409ft.
Jo said: “It is quite a big challenge, but, so far, it’s going pretty well. Fundraising will continue through the winter, with bake sales and other events, as we aim to raise £6,000 for CLIC Sargent over the year.”
