A WOMAN plans to reach her peak to raise £1,000 for charity.

Julie Pengally, 23, of Byron Close in Fleet, will climb Mount Snowdon on May 11 for Make-A-Wish.

Julie (pictured), who works in PR, will climb 3,560ft up steep river valleys while taking in the breathtaking views of lakes and peaks.

She said: "I am really looking forward to the challenge.

"I intend to raise as much money as possible for the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK as it is such a positive charity to support.

"I also hope to raise public awareness of Make-A-Wish.

"The money really does make a tremendous difference to the lives of the Wish children and their families and provides them with happy memories that they can cherish.

"To be able to play a part in helping to make a wish come true will be very rewarding."

Frances Heath, Make-A-Wish's southern region development executive, said: "I would like to wish Julie all the best in completing her challenge.

"The charity relies on fundraising activity from people like Julie."

Julie is training by trekking around Caesar's Camp in Tweseldown.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is the largest organisation in the world granting the favourite wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.

In the UK it currently grants a wish a day for youngsters aged 3-18.

Since it began here in 1986 it has granted more than 1,900 wishes at an average net cost of £2,000.
