Retired mountain rescuer to climb Snowdon for charity

A retired mountain rescuer is to dig out his climbing gear one last time in a bid to raise money for charity.

The Halstead Gazette reports that 76-year-old Les Littler will pull on his climbing shoes and scale Snowdon on July 15th.

Mr Littler, whose wife was diagnosed with dementia 11 years ago, hopes to generate £1,500 in aid of Essex Dementia Care in Braintree, which provides support to carers such as himself.

The retiree is no stranger to gruelling physical activity, having previously completed a 42 marathon race and using his bus passes to travel from Penzance to Carlisle with his wife to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, the newspaper added.

Ramesh Nathwani, a 60-year-old retiree, recently reached the summit of Kala Patthar in the Nepalese Himalayas, the Northampton Evening Telegraph reported.

On a previous attempt to scale the mountain, he only made it halfway up, however, this time he was determined to go one better and succeeded in reaching the top.
