A FUNDRAISING team set up in memory of a much loved West Cumbrian man have conquered England's highest mountain in his memory.

Walk for Lloyd was set up in memory of 18-year-old Lloyd Sutton from High Harrington, Workington following his death from bacterial meningitis on October 21 last year.

Following his death, a group of Lloyd's friends came together to try and raise awareness around meningitis, and funds for charity Meningitis Now, by tackling all the Wainwrights in his memory by the end of 2024.

Last weekend, despite some days of bad weather, the team from Walk for Lloyd conquered England's highest peak - Scafell Pike - in another major milestone for the fundraisers.

In a statement following the walk, Walk for Lloyd said: "Well what a weekend that has been. After having to call the walk off on Saturday due to bad weather, we were still able to get up on Sunday and complete another five fells, one of them being Scafell Pike.

"We would just like to say a big thank you to everyone that made the effort to come and join us on the walk this weekend, what a great effort it was from everyone.

"Special thank you as always to Graham Fraser for the photos from this weekend's walks. We hope to see youse all there again next weekend as we celebrate and remember Lloyds life; a peak at a time."
