Geography student heads for the hills on charity mission
A GEOGRAPHY student who is taking on a trek in support of a Dementia charity has raised almost £3,000.
Stephanie Jones, 19, from Lutyens Close in Macclesfield, will take on a 10-day trek in South America with a group of fellow students from Plymouth University in June.
The team hopes their challenge to trek the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu will raise a total of £100,0000 for Dementia UK.
The money will fund specialist dementia nurses, Admiral Nurses, who give practical, clinical and emotional support to families living with the disease to help them cope.
Stephanie, who is a former All Hallows pupil now studying geography at Plymouth, said: “I wish to thank everyone who has donated across Macclesfield.
“It is less than a month until I begin my trek to Machu Picchu and I have so far raised £2,955 and is expected to continue to rise.”
