Security guard’s mountain bid
A SECURITY officer will be taking a break from his day job to scale Britain’s highest mountain.
Jeremy Clewett, 66, from West Green, is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. He was inspired to raise funds for the charity because a friend suffers with the disease.
Jeremy said: “I have a special friend who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was born and is a gifted musician and special needs teacher.
“Two years ago I did a skydive to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust which was hugely successful and that has inspired me to tackle Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, standing proud at over 4,406 feet.
“The money I raise helps to drive forward new treatments which will help people living with cystic fibrosis.”
Cystic Fibrosis is caused by a defective gene that results in the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, becoming clogged with thick sticky mucus causing chronic infections and inflammation in the lungs and difficulty absorbing food.
People with Cystic Fibrosis have a rigorous daily treatment regime which can include taking dozens of tablets, inhaled and intravenous drugs, physiotherapy and occasional stays in hospital.
