A 5 year old girl has climbed the equivalent of Mount Everest three times to raise money for charity.

Daisy Hooper has been scaling Pendle Hill in Lancashire twice a week since February - hiking through snow, rain, hail and sunshine.

She's raising money for Pendleside Hospice.

Since starting her challenge, she's climbed the steep side 50 times, and raised more than £1,800 for Pendleside Hospice.

Daisy is amazing. Around Christmas time we were shopping in Burnley and there were raffle tickets being sold for the hospice. She asked me what a hospice was and I told her it was where poorly people are looked after. She said she wanted to raise some money for it.

Daisy usually walks with her parents, or with her grandma or grandad.

But she has also been joined by more than 60 of her classmates.
