Exactly two years after he was diagnosed with leukaemia, a Bakewell schoolboy has raised almost £40,000 for the hospital that treated him.

Now 15–year–old Andrew Davies, who attends Lady Manners School, has pledged to raise £150,000 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital by climbing Kilimanjaro and doing a skydive.
