Snaefell sleepover generates funds - and fun

 

Sixty people have spent the night sleeping under the stars on Snaefell mountain, raising thousands of pounds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

After a celebration supper at the summit last night, supporters zipped-up on the slopes for a few hours sleep in cold, damp and misty conditions.
