A dedicated St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice supporter is in training for a once-in-a-lifetime climb of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Becky Platt, 26, who works in the catering department at Reaseheath College in Nantwich, is all set for her gruelling challenge.

And Becky, of Woolstanwood, is urging other daring volunteers to join her on the trek from October 9-18 in 2014.

The trek has been organised to raise funds for the Winsford hospice, which is commemorating its 25th anniversary year.

Becky, who has previously taken part in the hospice’s popular annual Midnight Walk fundraiser, said: “I absolutely cannot wait.

“This is such an amazing opportunity and I’m really proud to be doing it for such an amazing local cause.

“If you’re interested then what are you waiting for? This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

St Luke’s senior fundraising events co-ordinator Nicola Jepson said fundraising participants will enjoy breath-taking views.

She said: “Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free- standing mountain.

“This stunning trek will guide you up the tranquil Machame route.

“Here you will trek through deep forest, home to spectacular wildlife stretching up to moorland and onwards towards glaciers before reaching Uhuru Peak.

“We cannot begin to explain the amazing sights guaranteed on this adventure of a lifetime. This is undoubtedly an amazing opportunity for participants, all in aid of the hospice.”

The minimum fundraising total for the Kilimanjaro Trek challenge is £3,950.
