An explorer will be sharing his experiences at an event in Northumberland next month to raise funds for a rescue charity.

Simon Yates, one of the most accomplished exploratory mountaineers of all time, is coming to Hexham Community Centre for a talk on Thursday, November 30.

He is best known for his role in a harrowing expedition to the Andes in 1985, documented in Joe Simpson’s bestselling book, Touching the Void.

All proceeds will go to the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team.

Tickets, priced £12, can be purchased in advance from www.kielder4x4safari.co.uk/?product=an-evening-with-simon-yates-my-mountain-life
