A 10-year-old boy who overcame a three and a half year battle with leukaemia will be climbing Mount Teide to raise money for charities which helped him when he was unwell at home in Alderney, in the Channel Islands. Zack’s mother Jo says that his only respite at the time was the family’s twice-yearly trips to Tenerife, and that her son always wanted to climb Teide. Now he’s going to do so, with his 11-year-old friend Liam, and the two have raised almost £2,000 so far with sponsorship for a two-day ascent in April. The boys’ goal is to raise £5,000 in total, and if that amount is exceeded, any balance will go to Tenerife causes. If anyone would like to sponsor the boys there is a gofundme page HERE to do so online. Good luck to them both!
