Family of late Ulverston campaigner Alice Pyne reach top of Kilimanjaro

THE sister and father of the late Ulverston campaigner Alice Pyne have reached the summit of Kilimanjaro, and have scattered her ashes on top of the African mountain - one of her last wishes.

The family of the inspiring teenager, who died at the age of 17 in January following a battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, climbed to the highest point in Africa early this morning.

Milly and Simon were joined by a team made up of Alice’s friends and fellow volunteers.

The Kilimanjaro climb formed part of a mammoth fundraising event, which has raised thousands for Alice’s Escapes - the charity set up by Alice to provide holidays for cancer patients and their families.

Vicky Pyne, Alice's mother, posted on Facebook at 6.47am this morning saying: “Just heard from my baby girl who is stood on top of the world's tallest freestanding mountain!”

Mrs Pyne set off with the rest of the group but had to return to base after a fellow team member became ill.

Have your say

Wanted to make some profound comment on this this event, but for me, 10 seconds of reflection, is more appropriate. Well done family and friends, you've done her proud.
