A doting dad is to undertake a gruelling 24-hour challenge to raise money to build a sensory room for his son.

Stephen Browne, from North Shields, will take on the three peaks challenge in June, to raise funds for his son Milo.

Milo suffers from delayed mental and physical development and has baffled medical experts who are unable to give a diagnosis.

The family is now fundraising with the Angels of the North charity to provide Milo with a sensory room.

And Stephen join a team of fundraisders for the challenge organised by Chris Hartley, manager of NUCAS bootcamps.

“I signed up for the challenge because it’s the hardest challenge to do in the UK,” said Stephen.

“The lack of sleep and climbing the three largest mountains in under 24 hours is a test of strength and determination. To me that sums up Milo.

“He is overcoming everything throwing at him and not letting anything get the better of him.”

The team are now looking for businesses to sponsor them.
