TWO friends fly out to Africa this weekend on a money- making mission for three charities.
Joy Grey and Sian Evans used to work together at M&P motorcycles in Gorseinon, and remained friends when Joy left to work in Debenhams. The pair then hatched a plan together to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, with Joy hoping to help raise cash for the Alzheimer's Society, and Sian for the RSPCA and Cancer Research.
Mum-of-three Joy, from Sketty, said: "My father-in-law suffered from Alzheimer's, which is why I decided to help that charity. We've been in training, in the gym and going up Pen y Fan.
"My family are pretty supportive, but they are a little nervous on my behalf, as it is quite a challenge. My husband says he has to stay at home though to look after the cat!"
Joy, 51, and Sian, 42 and from Gorseinon, are paying their own way over to Africa, to maximise charity funds.
