Walkers on route to the Snowdon summit would have been greeted by an unusual site on Saturday.

Owner of Prom Ally, Ally Elouise, took to the largest mountain in Wales on Saturday with a group of 11 others to raise money for the Penrhyn Bay-based charity.

The fundraising walk has seen more than £1140 raised for the charity to date, with money still to be counted from the weekend.

Following the walk, Ally said: "The walk was incredible. We picked the best day for it. It was so sunny and clear that the views from the summit were unbelievable.

"We did all struggle with the heat however as a corseted, glittery prom dress isn’t the coolest item of clothing to wear hiking in the sun."

The charity offers free loans of prom dresses and suits to school children, sixth form and college students who otherwise couldn't afford one.

Ally said the money raised on the walk would be going towards more storage space for all the dresses and suits.

She said: "I am planning on spending the money I’ve raised on storage facilities in order for me to keep accepting donated dresses and keep running the charity without having to disturb my Nan each time I need to send a dress off.

"I will also use some of the money for general upkeep of the charity, paying for packaging, hangers, website costs and dry cleaning."

Donations are still open and can be made Ally's Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/promallysnowdonclimb
