Eight members of staff at the Law Society of Scotland, including chief executive Lorna Jack, climbed Ben Nevis last weekend to raise money for the Society's staff charity, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Their efforts raised over £4,300 for the charity, which is dedicated to combating the genetic condition which affects more than 10,800 people in the UK.

Also completing the 1,345m ascent of the UK's highest mountain were Mark Smith, Sarah Sutton, Sean Callery, Tim Mouncer, Marina Sinclair-Chin, Louise Docherty and Gael Scott.

Society staff vote for a new charity each year. Efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust run until 31 October. Other recent beneficiaries have included Fresh Start and Guide Dogs Scotland.
