A 25-YEAR-OLD woman is preparing for the adventure of a lifetime in aid of a charity close to her heart.

Elaine Bound will climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Marie Curie Cancer Care after losing several relatives and friends to cancer in the past few years.

She said: “The charity was there for one in particular at the end. I feel I’d like to give something back and how better than to undertake a challenge such as this?”

Elaine starts her trek on June 13 – visit her fundraising page at justgiving.com/Elaine-Bound
