Seven scientists from the University of Sheffield’s Medical School raised more than £1,000 for charity after conquering the gruelling Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

The team, from the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research, climbed Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, covering 26 miles in less than 12 hours to raise funds for Arthritis Research UK.

Dr Allie Gartland, lab leader and senior lecturer, said: “There were a few aches and pains but this is nothing compared to the pain that people with arthritis suffer every day of every week of every year.”

The group consisted of Dr Allie Gartland, post-doctoral researchers Dr Robin Rumney and Dr Eric Wang, PhD students Ankita Agrawal, Karan Shah, Iain Huggins and medical student Nick Mani.
