The chairman of Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is gearing up to climb Africa’s highest mountain.
Graham Foster is training to take on Tanzania’s Kilimanjaro mountain, a 19,341 ft ascent, to raise money for the hospital’s AGE (Academy for Geratology Excellence) fund.
AGE is currently researching improved nurse training for elderly patient care.
Mr Foster said: “I wanted to help with this area of health improvement as it affects so many people and their carers and family so severely - and we’re all getting older every day.”
The high-altitude hike will also be a personal challenge for Graham, who plans to complete the climb in eight days with his son and brother-in-law, starting on October 18.
