The idea came from Jason Osborne who has been setting challenges to raise money for Defibrillators For All which spends £10,000 a year screening 100 young people for undiagnosed heart conditions, and maintaining public access defibrillators in Whittlesey.

The final climbers finished after 14 hours with the group raising almost £4,000. Deborah Slator from the charity said: “We are once again very grateful to Jason Osborne and the climbers. Defibrillators For All could not continue to do everything it does without the support of the community, so once again thank you.”
