AFTER trekking through the Sahara Desert on a camel a Bromley girl’s decided to return to Africa – this time to climb the continent’s highest northern peaks.
Graphic designer Julie Twydell, of Holmsdale Road, has been raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support since 17, when her father tragically passed away.
She decided to take on her latest challenge before Christmas and is now set to clamber up the Atlas Mountains in Morocco in what’s described as the “ultimate test of stamina and endurance”.
The 32-year-old said she’s quite scared and has been training in the gym to prepare for September's expedition.
She said: “Every time I think about it I feel a bit sick – it’s quite scary. I’m scared of heights.
“I always wanted to do something big and this is my major one. I realise as every day goes just what I’ve done.”
Miss Twydell’s got to find £3,000 and has a number of concerts planned to raise what’s needed. The first night sees some of Bromley’s best known bands perform at the H.G. Wells centre on Friday March 7.
