Wheelchair user Shaun Gash will try to scale Kilimanjaro to raise more than £10,000 pounds for charity.

Shaun, from Lancaster is paralysed from the chest down, but it's never held him back. He's tackled both the Great North Run and a skydive in the past year and a half.

He lost the use of his legs after a road accident 24 years ago.
