A man who has scaled his second mountain since being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease is returning to the hospital that saved his life to present them with new equipment.
Fleck Ditchburn spent 175 days at the West Cumberland Hospital last year after being admitted with collapsed lung and pneumonia.
