ASTRIUM engineers are used to reaching dizzying heights with their satellites, but a team of engineers from the Portsmouth company has scaled the peaks of Wales for charity.

The team of 12 walked up 15 mountains in 24 hours, scaling 3,000ft in total, and even found time for a cake competition along the way, sampling each other’s creations at each peak.

Team member Mark Butler said: ‘The walk went almost as planned – the weather could have been better so we were slowed up on some of the sections, but overall we achieved what we set out to do.’

The team have raised roughly £2,000 for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

The winner of the mountain peak bake off was Paul Hollis, with chocolate flapjacks.
