Fund-raising event with mountaineer
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, recounted in his 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 http://tinyurl.com/y8ftxgbx
