Percussionist extraordinaire Evelyn Glennie is launching a charity climb of Mount Kilimanjaro - and she needs your help.

Evelyn is taking the climb in aid of Able Child Africa, a charity which raises money to provide educational facilities for disabled children in Africa. Evelyn, who is a patron of the charity, is aiming to generate £25,000 for the cause with her trip.

She will head off on 25 November, and also has a charity concert for Able Child Africa planned for next July.
