A group of four tradesmen from Honiton are preparing to climb Africa’s highest mountain to raise money for a cancer charity.

Plasterer Zak Mortimer-Wale, 28, heating engineer Jan Wale, 46, carpenter Aaren Carpenter, 26, and bathroom fitter James Sturgeon, 33, will start their challenging climb up Mount Kilimanjaro on Friday, July 15.

Zak said: “We are doing this because it is a challenge of a lifetime and none of our group has ever done anything like this before.

“It will push us to places both mentally and physically that we have not yet experienced.”

The group hopes to raise £3,000 for Cancer Research UK from the climb. To donate to their challenge, visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jan-wale
