A Market Rasen man is preparing to set off on a fell walk across the roof of England to raise money for charity.

New Life Pastor Paul Hiley will be part of an intrepid band of hikers heading for the Lakes to climb England’s highest mountain.

The challenge will see the group take on a high level ascent and fell walk, including Great Gable (2949ft), Great End (2984 ft) and culminating at the summit of Scafell Pike, all to support the work of Across Lines, which is assisting the construction of a community hospital in Nyondo, Uganda.

“I think Across Lines is one of the best little charities I have come across for a long time,” said Paul.

“Based locally, it is directly involved in building, furnishing and staffing a small rural hospital in Uganda and I am really pleased to be a part of the project”

Across Lines was founded by Tealby couple John and Kathy Scarborough, and their son Nic, in November 2007, to give something back to the area for the care Nic received there after being taken ill while travelling.
