A young vet from Marlbrook will be trekking up Africa’s highest mountain this autumn to raise funds for animal welfare around the world.

Sarah Baker, who works as a locum at Severn Edge Vets in Kinver, has challenged herself to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and raise nearly £4,000 for the Worldwide Veterinary Service.

“I’m a member of WVS and I found out about the trek on their website – it’s a fantastic charity,” says Sarah. “I’ve never done anything like this before and the climb will be very challenging, but it will be worth it when I get to the top!”

Sarah has signed up for regular training sessions with an instructor at the Living Well gym at Bromsgrove’s Hilton Hotel, and will also be doing lots of hill walks to prepare for the trip, which takes place in October.

She aims to raise £3,990 by July 9, and has come up with various fundraising events and ideas, including making Easter cards to sell and organising raffles and car boot sales.

Sarah has also arranged a barn dance on May 10 at Wolverley Memorial Hall in Kidderminster, with music from Banjacs and a fish and chip supper.

Tickets cost £10 and are available from Sarah on .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
