An explorer will be sharing his experiences at an event in Northumberland next month to raise funds for a rescue charity.

Simon Yates, one of the most accomplished exploratory mountaineers of all time, is coming to Hexham on Thursday, November 30, to talk about his experiences with all proceeds going towards the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team.

He is best known for his role in a harrowing expedition to the Andes in 1985, recounted in his bestselling book, Touching the Void.

The Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team would also be very grateful to hear from individuals or companies willing to donate prizes that could be included in a raffle at the event to raise further much-needed funds for the team.
