A teenager who battled pain to climb a 1,000m mountain in five-and-a-half inch heels, has won the July Young Citizen Award.
Charlotte Smith, 13, of Wynndale Road, South Woodford, set herself the unusual challenge of climbing Mount Snowdon in Wales high-heeled to raise more than £4,500 for Haven House Children’s Hospice, High Road, Woodford Green.
She has been chosen for the July award, sponsored by Exchange Ilford, by judges Eve Connway-Ghazi, Exchange Ilford manager Marc Myers and Recorder editor Chris Carter.
Charlotte said: “My feet were aching quite a lot. It was really hard.
“But I wouldn’t take them off. My dad was saying, ‘if you’re going to keep complaining you’ll have to take them off’. But I refused to.”
