An explorer has given an inspirational talk to pupils about his fundraising feat in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Dr Stuart Fraser visited Brooke Priory School on Thursday to hold a special assembly to tell the children about his epic climb up Africa’s highest mountain.
Stuart, who lives in Derby, talked about how he tackled five climates during the challenge and brought in artefacts he collected on his journey.
In completing the climb, Stuart raised £3,600 for children’s hospice Rainbows.
Headteacher Elizabeth Bell said: “The children were completely enthralled by Stuart’s talk and some now have aspirations to follow in his footsteps.”
