A mum of two will climb 24 peaks in 24 hours to raise money for Plan UK’s girls fund, which supports the world’s poorest females.

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.”
