A father and daughter duo who climbed the equivalent of Mount Everest on their home stairs for Nunhead Knocks have now raised more than £1,000.

Seven-year-old May and her dad Ian went up and down their stairs 200 times each day throughout the sixteen day challenge.

In a blog post, Ian said: “The challenge has helped me and my partner, Ross, frame the wider impact of the Coronavirus pandemic to May and our son, Indy, giving them an understanding of life outside of our immediate family bubble.

“They now know that if someone sponsors us £5, that can pay for a day’s groceries.

“It helps them understand how we are helping the community – they attend Ivydale School in Nunhead which is a great local community school, so have lots of friends and school staff who are virtually supporting us and cheering us on.”
