A March dad is putting his best foot forward to hike up Snowdon after he was asked to take part in a charity walk - just days before the event happens.

Carlos Alessandrino-Odebode will be scaling the highest mountain in Wales and England as one of a group of 50 walking for the charity, Children Of Adam.

Money raised will help buy a defibrillator for family support charity, Little Miracles in Peterborough, and towards a soft play room at the Amazon children’s ward at Peterborough City Hospital.

Carlos, 28, has twin daughters Noelani and Sienna, seven. Sienna has cerebral palsy and they all enjoy days out with Little Miracles which is how he got involved.

Groundworker Carlos said: “We’ve had some great days out with other families with Little Miracles and I wanted to be able to give something back to them.

“I must be crazy I’ve never done anything like this before and have done no specific training, just signed up and will be joining the coach on Saturday (17).”

Luckily he trains regularly at March Amateur Boxing Club so hopes his fitness levels will carry him up to the top and back for the estimated five hour trek without any problems.
