Swansea City kitman Michael Eames will take on the National Three Peaks Challenge this weekend to help raise funds for the Swansea branch of the National Autistic Society.

The gruelling challenge sees those taking part attempt to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon within 24 hours.

The total walking distance is 23 miles (37km) and the total ascent is 3,064 metres (10,052ft).

Michael and his group have already raised a fantastic sum of over £2,600 and anyone wishing to support their efforts can still donate.

The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for autistic people and their families.

It seeks to provide help and support for the 700,000 autistic people in the UK and their families.

The charity’s initiatives include running specialist schools, campaigning for improved rights and training companies on being more autism-friendly.

Michael and his colleagues have trained in Brecon and around the Gower in preparation for the event, including overnight walks in readiness for some of the conditions they will face.

Anyone who would like to donate can do so HERE.

Everyone at Swansea City wishes Michael and his group all the best in their efforts.
