Deliveroo worker climbed Snowdon to deliver a pizza at the summit

A Deliveroo rider travelled 217 miles before climbing to the top of Snowdon to deliver a pizza.

Cambridge student Yusuf Haque scaled the 3,560ft mountain in all his work gear.

His feat, undertaken with fellow students from his Islamic Society, raised £5,000 for Charity Week and went towards lifting children out of poverty across the globe.

Wearing a branded jacket and helmet he hiked to the top of the highest peak in England and Wales and held the greasy treat aloft at the summit, reports North Wales Live.

His quirky stunt has now drawn the attention of viral meme channel No Context Brits , which shared a picture of the student and captioned it: “Who ordered a Nando’s to the top of Snowdon?”

The delivery giant then quote tweeted the image, which was liked more than 13,000 times in 24 hours, adding: “Someone clearly fancied a little summit summit.”

The organisation Charity Week also responded to the viral tweet explaining that Yusuf had delivered a pizza and not a Nando’s and that his fundraiser took place during the event in October 2018, with the money made part of £21,455.75 raised by his society.

In total after fundraising in six countries £1.37 million was pledged by Islamic Reef to projects around the world.
