Bishop's Hull fundraiser in Mount Kilimanjaro Help For Heroes challenge
1:40pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
A BISHOP’S Hull woman who recovered from serious illness is trekking up Africa’s highest mountain to raise money for a military charity.
Julia Blatchford, of Gipsy Lane, who is tackling Mount Kilimanjaro next month in aid of Help for Heroes, needed four operations and spent six weeks in hospital after having a brain abscess last year.
She said: “That experience made me view life differently and I wanted to do something positive.
“Coming from a military family, I’ve always supported Help for Heroes and their amazing work.”
