Treeton fundraiser set to hand over Kilimanjaro cash

A PARAMEDIC who scaled Africa’s tallest peak will soon be handing over the £8,000 she has raised for a charity.

Angela Ord (46), of Maryhill Close in Treeton, climbed the 16,000 ft Mount Kilimanjaro recently as part of her fundraising bid to help the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.

Her father died after suffering a bleed on the brain when she was eight, and she herself suffered a bleed when she was 33 although tests showed it was coincidental rather than hereditary.

Angela will hand over her big cheque to the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust at Daniel Yorath House on Shaw Close in Garforth, Leeds, on Thursday, December 7.
