Prison officer takes on Kili
Bookmark and Share
A prison officer from the Isle of Man is planning a trek up Kilimanjaro in an attempt to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care.

Janette Coleman is preparing to put on walking boots and spend several nights in tents, as she takes on Africa's highest mountain, which is over 19,000 ft high and covered with glaciers near the top.

She will also be trying to raise funds for the Manx Grand Prix Helicopter Fund.

Ms Coleman said that she had been training hard on the island for the trip, during which she may also benefit from having insect protection products to keep away mosquitos when at lower altitudes in a part of the world afflicted by malaria.

This had involved enduring "thick Manx mist [and] gale force winds," she stated, although she had no mountain experience.

Snaefell is the Isle of Man's only peak high enough to be considered a mountain, at 2,036 ft (619 m).
