A lifelong asthma sufferer is to climb Wales’ highest mountain next month to raise money for an international aid charity.
Father-of-three Gary Evans (35) of Barnes Road, Donington, will have the qualified support of doctors when he joins a group climbing 3,560ft Mount Snowdon on September 15.
He hopes to raise at least £500 for CARE International, a charity providing humanitarian aid in almost 90 countries and whose ambassadors include Dragon’s Den star Deborah Meaden, lifestyle guru Laurence Llewelyn Bowen and James Bond film composer David Arnold.
Gary said: “CARE is one of the world’s top three aid agencies and after watching a presentation by them of a person with special needs climbing Snowdon, I was moved to consider how I could help them.
“I was anxious about the climb because as an asthma sufferer, I find breathing difficult even at the best of times.
“But the doctors advised me that as long as I’m aware of my condition and have the right people there, I can do it at my own risk.”
