A TEN-year-old Sutton girl has conquered Yorkshire's Three Peaks in memory of her baby cousin who was born sleeping.

Evie Eccles completed the gruelling walk – which takes in the summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – in 11 hours 40 minutes.

She tackled the challenge, on Saturday, in tribute to little Jack Croden.

Evie's efforts raised over £800 for Aidan's Elephants.

The non-profit organisation supports Airedale Hospital to provide care for bereaved parents who have lost a baby or young child through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal or infant death.

It provides handmade memory boxes, funding for midwife bereavement training and a bereavement suite and ongoing support for families.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has generously sponsored me and supported me on doing the Three Peaks challenge for Aidan's Elephants," said Evie, a pupil at Glusburn Community Primary School.

She was joined on the walk by her dad Matthew, Jack's father Richard and her aunt Nicola Croden, who added over £100 to the pot.

"I'm really proud of Evie," said her mum, Jo.

"She was up, excited and ready to go at 4.30 in the morning!

"It absolutely threw it down for part of the day but she didn't complain at all.

"And afterwards she was running around and skipping!"

The group had tackled some of the individual mountains as part of its training, but not all three.

Over £700 donated at Jack's funeral has also been presented to Aidan's Elephants.

Jack's family received a memory box and has been supported by the Sunbeam Bereavement Suite.
