A fundraising Leeds mum’s bid to overcome four mountain challenges in as many months has stepped into action.

Niki Porter, who lives in Yeadon, climbed Helvellyn in the Lake District on Saturday as she attempts to raise money for the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research charity.

The 39-year-old will climb Scafell Pike in May, Snowdon and the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in June before Ben Nevis in July.

The challenge is in tribute to Niki’s cousin Thea Wilson, who was told she had leukaemia in December. Each challenge represents a course of Thea’s chemotherapy.
