A FORMER international showjumper is preparing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for local youngsters with brain tumours.

Equestrian Emma Jane Brown hit headlines in 1984 when she won the Ladies National Championship of Great Britain, aged just 20, and was the highest ranked female rider for many years.

Now Dame Brown is attempting her next sporting challenge, the arduous 6,000 metre climb in aid of Solihull’s Joseph Foote Foundation. The charity was founded by Andy and Judy Foote for their son Joseph after he was diagnosed with, and died from, a brain tumour.
