10:30 - 10 March 2005

A Polesworth climber is on top of the world after achieving his goal of reaching the highest point in Africa.

John Price finally reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and didn't forget to tuck a copy of the Herald in his rucksack.

Standing at 19,340 feet, John, 42 took the six day ascent in his stride, arriving at the summit of the dormant volcano at 8.45am on February 24. All the hard training paid off and he succeeded in raising substantial funds for the Leukaemia Research Fund, including 500 from main sponsors Polesworth Garage Ltd.

Anyone can still sponsor John by logging on to http://www.justgiving.com/mountkilimanjaro2005 and the money will go directly to the Leukaemia Research fund.
