Students to take on big challenge
A GROUP of students are to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for charity.
The eight students at University of Exeter's Cornwall campus at Penryn hope to raise £3,000 for Hope for Children.
Matthew Ramsay, the only Cornish-born member of the group, said: "I've always been an active volunteer, but over the last year or so I haven't been doing so much fundraising so I wanted to do something big that will really push me out of my comfort zone.
"I'm happy to be raising money for Hope for Children as a few years ago I visited Swaziland and supported a local school for orphans.
