A HUDDERSFIELD man is about to embark on a challenge of a lifetime.
Hamish Morgan, 38, of Netherton, has been accepted on to a charity trek to Peru, where he will spend five days trekking in the Andes.
The nine-day trip in September is part of a fund-raising event to help raise money for five different children's charities - Barnado's, Childline, Dreams Come True, Kith & Kids, and MedEquip4kids.
Mr Morgan said: "This will truly be a challenge of a lifetime and I cannot wait to go.
"It is one place I have always dreamed of going and to go and raise money for children's charities at the same time is just amazing."
Father of one Mr Morgan has to raise a minimum of £2,800 in order to go.
He adds: "Part of the challenge is raising the money but I am looking forward to the whole experience."
Mr Morgan certainly has a lot of training ahead of him as he will be expected to trek about 10 hours a day in extremely high altitude conditions.
"These next few months will involve a lot of hard work but it is something I will relish in and give 110%.
"The fact that I will be raising money for children's charities couldn't be better. I have recently become a dad and it really changes you.
"My daughter is lucky to have such a loving family but there are a lot of kids out there that don't get that love and support they deserve.
"If I can help in any way I will be very proud of myself."
Mr Morgan has set up a website to help with his fund-raising.
