For they're jolly good cellos

Like many charity walkers, Jeremy Dawson and two friends will be raising money by climbing the four peaks this summer. Unlike most walkers, they'll be doing it with cellos strapped to their backs.

High culture: the Extreme Cellists
High culture: the Extreme Cellists
Dawson, Claire Wallace and James Rees are collectively known as the Extreme Cellists. The intrepid trio will be climbing the four highest mountains in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, where they’ll perform for any walkers lucky enough to be at the summits.

They will collect sponsorship and hope to raise £10,000 for Mountain Rescue and Aspire, a spinal cord injury charity.

The Extreme Cellists have been raising money for charity since 2003, when they were inspired by a documentary on extreme ironing. Previous charity events have included playing on the roofs of 42 Anglican churches and playing on every London street on the Monopoly board in a single day.
