A RUNCORN schoolgirl has climbed the highest mountain in Wales and raised £680 for BBC Children in Need.

Grace May Chester, nine, from Halton Lodge, scaled Mount Snowdon in five hours and 30 minutes.

Proud dad Ste said: “She did this alongside myself and her aunt.

“She wanted to do something to raise money for children that didn’t have much.

“Grace certainly deserves some recognition for her kind and selfless nature and huge achievement.”
