Frank Dransfield, who lives in Little Common, plans to do the trek on October 8-9 and will attempt to climb Tryfan in Snowdonia, Wales.

The charity he’s fundraising for is called Rescue Remedies.

He rescues and cares for the most vulnerable dogs who are abandoned and found to be stray, are on “death row” in pounds and are at risk of falling asleep.

Rescue Remedies provides these dogs with support while they wait for a home.

So far, over £ 900 has been donated to Frank’s cause on a JustGiving page created by his mother.

Frank said, “I do this because I love all animals, especially dogs. Lots of dogs need help, I don’t want to see them slaughtered and they need homes. Rescue Remedies helps dogs who need it most.

“Thank you to everyone who donated to help us. “

Frank’s mother, Hayley, said: “Frank is a true animal lover through and through, so anyone who knows him personally will not be surprised at his request to take on this challenge.

“I have been involved with Rescue Remedies for 11 years, now Director / Administrator.

“Frank and his sister Lily both grew up being involved in dog rescue, visiting kennels regularly and having foster dogs with us.

“They both have a solid understanding of the importance of rescue. Rescue Remedies is really struggling with funding from Covid and additionally the growing number of abandoned or abandoned dogs.

“Frank was determined to help raise awareness and provide much needed funding.

“He has been training for the past few months for this and is extremely determined to make it to the top.”
