Gathimba Edwards Foundation fundraiser Abi Lyall has reached Briathwaite, a village to the west of Keswick in the Lake District, on the eve of her second peak challenge.

After climbing Ben Nevis on Saturday and cycling the 67 miles from the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre to Killin, she spent yesterday cycling 99 miles to reach Abington.

Tonight, she reached Keswick after completing 93 more miles in the saddle, finishing the journey with a very sore knee.

Tomorrow (15 August), she will set off at 5am to climb Scafell Pike before cycling 74 miles from Scafell to Preston.

Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England, at an elevation of 978 metres (3,209 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Lake District National Park, in Cumbria, and is part of the Southern Fells.

Abi is undertaking this impressive feat of endurance to raise money for Esther and Emmanuel, two Kenyan children who live in poverty who she met on a recent trip to the country.

Incredibly, with only one peak down, she has already surpassed her £5,000 target, but is hoping to raise as much as possible to help give these children the best possible future.
