A donation of £50,000 has been given to an autism charity on Teesside - raised partly by a trek to Mount Kilimanjaro in memory of a climber from York.
The cheque was presented to the charity today at The Daisy Chain Project headquarters, in Norton, by housing group Vela.
John Taylor, who lived near York, was killed in an avalanche in the French Alps last year.
He had previously worked for Vela.
Several of his friends recently trekked up Mount Kilimanjaro in his memory and to raise money for charity.
A plaque was also unveiled in his memory today.
