EDC Student Jason Davison (pictured left) and two of his pals are all set to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise cash for the international charity, Childreach International.

East Durham College business student Jason Davison, 18, is busy training and preparing for a gruelling challenge in support of underprivileged children.

Jason Davison, 18, along with pals Richard Rowe, 22, Joshua Ridley, 19, and are all in training ahead of a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania.

The lads, who all live in Oakerside Park, in Peterlee, will take on the challenge to raise money for Childreach International.

The charity works to develop the lives of youngsters living in Tanzania, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Cambodia and Bangladesh.

Jason, who is studying a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business, said: “It will be tough but we are all looking forward to it.

“The charity works to improve the lives of children and it is really working, we just want to do whatever we can to help that.”

Jason, Richard and Joshua will be joined by around nine others for the trek in August this year.

Everyone who takes part in the challenge must raise a minimum of £2,500 for the cause. “I think we all know the climb is going to be difficult, but it will be a brilliant experience,” added Jason.
