A housing association worker scaled three peaks to raise money for elderly residents.

Stacy Hember of Dawn Close, Maldon, recently climbed Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales.

She had hoped to complete the challenge within 24 hours but did it in 28 hours 30 minutes.

Stacy raised more than £550 towards converting bathrooms into walk-in shower rooms at the sheltered housing flats managed by Maldon Housing Association, an almshouse charity, where is an assistant treasurer and fundraiser.
