A SEVEN-year-old Silsden boy is on top of the world after conquering seven peaks in as many days to raise money for charity.

Oliver Bradley took on the challenge in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association – with funds also going to Silsden Storm amateur rugby league club, which he plays for.

The youngster – who notched-up the summits of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent, Beamsley Beacon, Sharp Haw, Simon's Seat, Whernside and

Silsden Nab – coined-in £900 in total.

"I am so incredibly proud of him," says Oliver's mum, Libby Wilson, who accompanied him on the treks.

"He is rugby mad and chose to do the challenge without hesitation, using a school holiday week to complete it.

"We endured all weathers, which made the walks that bit more challenging – and he never moaned once!

"At seven years old I think his determination and passion for what he loves is amazing. And he didn’t just do something fantastic for his club and teammates, but also for such a worthy cause."

The Silsden Storm club has been supporting the Motor Neurone Disease Association since Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow was diagnosed with the condition in December 2019.

After Rob's best friend and former teammate Kevin Sinfield completed a seven-in-seven feat for the association, Silsden Storm under-nines coach Graham Lightowler was inspired to issue a similar challenge to his players.

The club portion of the money raised by Oliver has helped buy new kit, headguards and gum shields.

Libby thanked all those who gave support, adding: "Appreciation also goes to Graham and players Alfie Maroney and Scarlett Hemingway – both aged nine – who completed their own challenges and raised funds that went both to Silsden Storm and the Motor Neurone Disease Association."
