Pub staff have completed a gruelling trek across the Himalayas, raising thousands of pounds for charity.
Lisa Field, Anna Vye and Lindsay Ross, who work at the North Star Pub in Littlehampton Road, Worthing, joined staff from other pubs in the region for the 100km trek last month.
The challenge was part of an ongoing effort to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Coupled with other recent fund-raising activities, the pub has contributed to a regional total of £25,000 of donations.
Over a three-year period, they have raised £75,000.
Lisa Field, manager of the North Star, said: “This is the third trek that I’ve done and we’ve tried to keep to the theme of the Wonders of the World.
“I did Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China but this one was the hardest.”
The group flew out for two weeks, often walking for up to nine hours a day.
