AN adventurous six-year-old from Westhoughton is set to tackle Mount Snowdon for charity.

Jasmine Holt, who attends St James CE Primary, is raising awareness for Children’s Mental Health Week.

Jasmine is attempting to ascend the Welsh peak in her latest charity challenge hopefully on either February 5 or 12, dependent on conditions, for Place2Be, and has already surpassed her original target of £250.

Mum Abbey Mills said: “I’m obviously biased but she’s just the sweetest little girl. I asked her why she wanted to help people and she said, I just don’t want anyone to ever be sad.”

The idea to take on the highest peak in Wales was inspired by a mantra Jasmine has on display in her bedroom – This girl, she Can Move Mountains.

Abbey added: “Jasmine said, why don’t we walk up a mountain? So, I researched the safest mountains for kids and that was Snowdon. Once she got it in her head, that’s what we were going to do.”

Last year Jasmine raised around £2,600 for the same charity, when she took on the challenge to walk at least two miles a day for a week.

She wore an array of different fancy dress costumes. Her efforts received attention from newspapers and magazines to an extent Abbey never would have imagined.

She said: “Jasmine was so proud. She kept saying she was famous. We originally planned to do about a mile a day and she was just like, I’m not stopping.”

Jasmine was inspired by her mum, who walked from Bolton Wanderers’ stadium to Blackpool, also for the same cause. The 31 miles was ultimately matched by Jasmine’s efforts last year.

This year’s challenge is further testament to Jasmine’s kind nature and resolve.

Abbey said: “It’s amazing what she does. It absolutely inspires me. I’ve no doubt she’ll be spurring me on. I asked her when she’d stop helping people and she said, when I’m 90 or when people don’t need help anymore.”
