THREE PEAKS: Pinner brothers take to great heights to raise more than £4,000 for cousin’s treatment

 Published on: 3rd August 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Two brothers have taken on an epic three peak challenge in a bid to raise money for their cousin who is going through cancer treatment.

Callum and Dylan Finch, who are eight and five, climbed the UK’S three highest peaks, Snowdon, Scaffell Pike and Ben Nevis, to support their cousin Olivia who was diagnosed with a neuroblastoma in January.

So far the duo have raised more than £4,000 for the Olivia Finch Fight Fund after scaling the three peaks over three weekends over June and July.

Speaking to PINNERNEWS, their mum Sasha described the duo as “little superstars” after successfully completing the three peaks.

She said: “The first one we did was Snowdon and it was amazing, I started crying I couldn’t believe the boys had done it. It was really lovely for them because they’ve now got their own contribution to Olivia.

“As a family we can’t do anything about what Olivia’s going through but it has helped us to feel a little bit more positive.

Sasha added that the money the boys have raised will go towards funding life-saving treatment for Olivia.

She said: “As soon as she was diagnosed in January, they kicked off all the treatment. It’s going well but it’s quite an aggressive cancer so if it comes back the outcomes aren’t great.

“Solving Kids Cancer have really helped, they help families not only going through a gruelling treatment plan but also with accessing different trials.”
