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.”
