Sandbach firefighter to climb Kilimanjaro for Firefighters Charity and North West Air Ambulance
John Brownrigg, watch manager at Sandbach Fire Station, has been an on-call firefighter for 20 years.
He will set off on his once-in-a-lifetime challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro on September 11 with all money raised going to the Firefighters Charity and North West Air Ambulance.
Kilimanjaro lies 205 miles south of the equator and stands on Tanzania’s northern border with Kenya.
John said: “It’s a tough climb as Kilimanjaro is 19,340 feet above sea level, which is nearly five times the height of Snowdon and has tropical temperatures at the base to a freezing -26C at the snow-capped summit.
“I am doing this to raise money for two very good causes and would like anyone who can to please sponsor me.
“Help me to help those that help us.”

Good luck John! If you need any advice, shoot me an email! firstname.lastname@example.org
