A TEDDY bear from a rural primary school was taken to the ‘Roof of Africa’ during a charitable six-day trek.
Dan Robinson, a former pupil of Wilson’s Endowed CE School, Over Kellet, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania earlier this year and took the school bear with him.

Dan is currently studying mechanical engineering at Sheffield University but before setting off returned to his old primary school to tell the pupils about his journey to raise money for Child Reach International.
Year Six pupil Campbell Murrell presented Dan with Wilson Bear at a special assembly to accompany him at the top of Africa’s tallest mountain.
