90-year-old completes 2-month-long fundraising feat

Jun 25, 2020 13:29 IST

90-year-old Margaret Payne scaled 2,398, equivalent to the height of the Scottish mountain Suilven, by climbing the stairs of her home in two months! She was inspired by military veteran Tom Moore, who completed 100 laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS. The money raised by Payne, over £4,00,000 (more than 3 crore Indian rupees), will benefit charities supporting the NHS, Highlands Hospice and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Earlier, Payne received a royal letter from Prince Charles, calling her a ‘hero’ for her ‘magnificent efforts and indomitable spirit’.
