A LITTLE Carlton student is scaling Africa’s tallest mountain to raise money to help people across the world.
Olly Hennessy, an 18-year-old geography and sports management student at Loughborough University, Leicestershire, will be joining his peers to take up the challenge in September.
Standing at 5,895 metres, Kilimanjaro is a structure made up of three dormant volcanoes and was first scaled in 1889.
Olly’s aim is to raise £2,500 for Practical Action, and is appealing for benevolent readers to sponsor him, whether it be £1 or £100.
“Any donation will be greatly received,” he said.
