Lad and dad to scale Mont Blanc

Douglas duo's Alpine charity trek

A father and son duo are preparing to climb Europe's highest peak for charity.

Patrick and David Butterworth, from Douglas, have been training to tackle Mont Blanc in the Alps next weekend - a daunting 15,781 feet up - and reach the summit on 6 September.

It's being done in aid of Craig's Heartstrong Foundation and the Isle of Man Netball Development Squad.

Support is coming from eGaming firm Newfield.

Twenty-two year-old Patrick says it will be a 'mental and physical challenge'.

You can support the pair via their JustGiving page.
