Ramneek Sohal will undertake the gruelling challenge on June 13 and hopes to raise around £1,000.

She will be taking on the peaks of the Lake District, including England’s tallest mountain Scafell Pike.

“The work that Plan does is really close to my heart. I am one of five sisters, I have children, and my origins are in India, a country where Plan works. I still have relatives there, so I really wanted to contribute,” said Ramneek.

“I like that Plan’s work is focused on long-term goals like educating girls and infrastructure projects to build a better future.”

Ramneek will be met at the finish line by her two children, aged four and six, and her husband.

“My daughter thinks what I am doing is wonderful and she really wants to follow in my footsteps,” she said.
