    Presenter, BBC Radio York

    An 11-year-old girl from Harrogate is raising money for charity by encouraging people to donate teddy bears and other cuddly toys with the promise she'll find them a new home.

    Scarlet Smith-Dunn has set up a website where people can choose to pay to "adopt" a teddy.

    She washes, brushes and prepares each teddy for adoption before they are sent out to their new "parents". 

    The website only launched a week ago , but already she's had people buying the teddies for £30 a piece.

    Scarlet and mum Victoria explain what brought about the idea:

    Mount Everest

    Ian Toothill is trying to fundraise for MacMillan Cancer research and is now ready to head off in less than a month.  

    He says he'll definitely face some challenges on the climb: "I eat a very specific diet to offset the effects of cancer and I won't really be able to eat that diet.

    "Also there'll obviously be problems with acclimatisation and even though I was born in Manor Top that doesn't quite count as acclimatisation!"
