Scaling the heights of Snowdon is a tall order for a Morecambe woman.

But thoughts of a child in Kenya will keep Angie Carmon smiling with every step she takes up the highest mountain in Wales.

Angie will be raising money for Children of Watamu’s Happy House Children’s Home where her sponsor child Neema lives.

Angie, 51, activities coordinator at Lakeland View Care Centre, will be tackling Snowdon on Sunday.

“I am confident I will complete it,” she said.

“Climbing for the Happy House will give me the determination I need and I am inspired by the work that goes on there which will then boost me to the top.”

Angie is planning a trip to Kenya this summer to volunteer at the Happy House, founded and run by former Blackpool landlady Sue Hayward.

It opened in 2010 and is now home to 109 orphaned, abandoned or neglected children, who, with 130 kids from the local community, also attend the Happy House kindergarten and primary school.
