A 10-year-old boy from Llanfyllin is climbing the three peaks challenge to raise money for his school.

Elis MacDonald, a Year Six pupil at Ysgol Pontrobert, is taking on the challenge to raise money for his school’s breakfast club.

Ysgol Pontrobert’s breakfast club relies on financial contributions from parents and guardians of the school’s pupils to keep it running.

Sports-mad Elis has already completed the climb up Snowdon, Wales and England’s tallest mountain, and has so far raised more than £300.

His next challenge is climbing England’s biggest mountain, Scafell Pike, then Ben Nevis in Scotland, the tallest mountain in the British Isles at 1,345m.

After completing the three peaks challenge, Elis will have climbed a total walking distance of 23 miles and ascent of 3,064 metres.

The three peaks challenge is his leaving gift for his school before he heads to secondary school in September.

Ysgol Pontrobert headteacher Catherine Parry said: “This is a huge gift to the school and it shows the important relationship between families and pupils with the school.”
