First published in News

A student is climbing the world’s highest mountain to raise money for a charity that aims to fight poverty in developing countries.

Lloyd Quinn, 21, of Ashlong Grove, Halstead, is taking on Mount Everest in an 11-day trek with ten other students from Portsmouth University, where he is studying.

The students will climb to the Mount Everest Base Camp, which stands at 17,500ft, and hope to raise around £20,000 for Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO).
