KEIRA Lumb is aiming high – with more than 20 friends and 10 supporters she is today climbing Mount Snowdon.

The speech and language therapist is scaling the Welsh summist to raise cash for the Myasthenia Gravis Association – and has already collected £1,500.

Keira, of Greenfield Road, Ramshill, was diagnosed with the auto-immune condition five years ago. “I wanted to do this walk to prove that even though I have myasthenia gravis I can do it,” said Keria whose 12-year-old step-son Andrjz Swaryczewski is one of the party doing the walk.

Scarborough-based AWJ Glazing and Joiners have supplied the minibus free of charge to take the party to Wales. That is worth £240. “The firm has done work for members fo my family so I contacted them asking for sponsorship and they said they would love to help out,” said Keira, who is in her first year of a counselling degree at University of Hull Scarborough campus.
