News Story: Fundraising above the clouds

A LOCAL adventurer has just completed a mountainous task to help raise more than £70,000 for charity.

David Healey, 36, pulled on his hiking boots to climb the 19,340ft to the top of Africa’s tallest mountain as part of the Kilimanjaro for Kirsty campaign.
