Kate and Chloe on top of the world

Three peaks under their belt and £645 raised for the Happy House, Chloe Groves and Kate Beer deserve to rest on their laurels.
Despite bad weather, and at times deep snow,  friends Chloe and Kate were successful in completing the National Three Peaks Challenge in 27 hours at the weekend.
It saw them ascend Britain's three highest peaks,  Ben Nevis. Scafell and Snowdon.
Chloe, who is in Said's sponsor family, said: "Kate and I would like to say thank you to everyone who sponsored us. It was great to have so much support.
"We felt so proud of each other when we finished and knowing that we had pulled through it and made it to the end was a great feeling. We are so pleased to have completed the Three Peaks to raise money for this amazing charity.
The conditions were not the best and very difficult at times. Ben Nevis was very wet and we had to face and hour's trek to the summit through 8ft of snow! Scafell was better but still challenging. When we reached Snowdon there was very difficult weather, wet and windy. We made it to the final summit in 24 hours and completed the Three Peaks in 27 hours."
Chloe and Kate (pictured on top of Ben Nevis) showed real  Happy House Girl POWER to meet their challenge and we are so grateful to them for taking on such a tough fundraising mission. Our thanks to them and to all those people who supported them.
Every penny raised will go  to helping our children.
Thank you girls.

Kendal Inner Wheel were delighted to hear how much our family has grown and our Happy House developed over the last 12 months, when Elizabeth Gomm was their guest speaker.
Some of the members had heard Mama's memorable and moving address to the District Rotary Conference in Scarborough last year and were keen to have an update.
Thank you ladies for your lovely welcome and your donations, and welcome to a new member of family who is sponsoring one of our Dr Danwata Scholarship students.
