A DOCTOR is to take to the mountains again to raise money for the British Red Cross and the Stroke Association.

Dr Dave Quinn is a consultant neuropsychologist at Wye Valley NHS Trust and helps people who are recovering from brain injuries.

He has already climbed the North Col of Mount Everest, as well as Mount Blanc, to raise money for charity, and he cycled from Lands End to John O'Groat's three years ago.

This time he will attempt to scale Mount Toubcal in Morocco and, along with county street pastor Henry Rudge, will start the challenge on Saturday.

"This is the first time that Henry has done anything like this," said Dr Quinn.

"Training has gone well and we've been to the Brecon Beacons quite a lot."

Dr Quinn has also responded to international disasters involving British nationals and was an Olympic torchbearer in Hereford in 2012.
