Jock off on lat­est ad­ven­ture

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

SCONE man Jock McInnes is gear­ing up for his lat­est ad­ven­ture.

The in­trepid 62-year-old, who works in Dundee for Send Scot­land, a char­ity which helps peo­ple who are deaf and blind, has raised more than £1 mil­lion for char­ity by trekking across the Sa­hara twice as well as hik­ing across the Gobi desert and scal­ing Mount Etna, Mount El­brus (Europe’s high­est peak), Kin­a­balu (Asia’s high­est) and Kil­i­man­jaro (Africa’s high­est).

Now he is to climb in Ro­ma­nia’s Fa­garas moun­tains for a spe­cial rea­son. He is rais­ing money to help with med­i­cal costs for his nephew Sean’s 20 month old son Lloyd, who has STXBP1 en­cephalopa­thy. He is the only Scot with it and has had 600 seizures.
