An award-winning dog handler from Pymoor is hoping to raise £1,000 for charity by taking on a walking challenge on the UK’s highest mountain.

Charlotte-Louise Page, 21, has set her sights on completing an eight-hour walk on Ben Nevis, in Scotland, with a little help from her Dalmatian, Hugo.

Ms Page has been showing Dalmatians for 10 years and has received a hatful of awards along the way, including the Shaun McAlpine Award from the Kennel Club for outstanding achievement.

The Anglia Ruskin student has already raised more than £400 towards the feat but is hoping to hit the £1,000 mark so she can split the money between Macmillan Cancer Support and the North of England Dalmatian Welfare charity.

The walk is scheduled to take place on April 17.

Ms Page said: “My aim is to reach £1,000 for both these charities that have played a huge part in my life. Although the walk will be long and challenging I know that whilst I’m doing it I’ll be promoting both charities and making awareness of the support out there.”
