Summer holidays with a difference

Right Chloe, Dean and dad Charlie Howes on Mount Snowdon in Wales Inset: At the summit of Scarfell Pike as part of the Four Peaks Challenge.TWO local children had a summer holiday with a difference this year when they took on the Four Peak Challenge, climbing the UKs four highest peaks.

Chloe (11) and Dean Howes (14), both of whom are students at Friends School Lisburn, completed the Four Peaks - Slieve Donard, Ben Nevis, Mount Snowdon and Scarfell Pike - with their father Charlie during the school holidays.

They began by climbing a very wet Slieve Donard, before making it to the snowy top of Ben Nevis. They then travelled to the Lake District to summit Scarfell Pike and finished

their challenge on Mount Snowdon. All in all the Lisburn family had a great time, and Chloe and Dean are already looking forward to what dad has in store for them next year!
