A TEENAGER is set to reach new heights as he climbs takes on the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of a Gambian school.

Jack Farren, from Solihull, is hoping to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in under 24 hours to raise funds for the African school he will be visiting in November.

The Solihull Sixth Form student will be completing his trek in July.

The 17-year-old is aiming to raise £2,000 to go towards the running costs and construction including teachers wages of Jemus Jammah Memorial Nursery and lower basic school.

He will be visiting the school with a team from Solihull Sixth Form in November and will be taking over a haul of teaching resources as well as helping out with some building projects and getting to know some of the children at the school.

said: “I am doing the three peaks challenge as I want to test myself and put myself out of my comfort zone to find my limits.

“As the Three Peaks Challenge is well known for being a physically and mentally demanding expedition, this will stand me in good stead to raise a significant amount of funds for the school.”
