Teesside surgeons climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise cash

Six surgeons from Teesside are hoping to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money to buy medical equipment.

The team from South Tees' NHS Trust will attempt to climb Africa's highest peak in Tanzania next month.

David Chadwick, a surgeon at Middlesbrough James Cook Hospital, said the money would be used to buy the latest keyhole surgery equipment.

It will be used to help treat patients with prostate, bladder and kidney cancer.
