TWO Barnsley men who did a 24-hour live podcast in a bid to raise funds for a local charity have managed to surpass their target goal, raising more than £2,000.

Dan Nestor and Andy Kitchen took part in a podcast in January, raising money for Barnsley Hospital Charity with the money specifically going towards the neonatal baby unit.

On Wednesday, Dan climbed the highest mountain in Africa - Mount Kilimanjaro - fundraising for the same cause.

Dan told the Chronicle: “I was really fortunate to have been given the opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

“It’s been a once in a lifetime adventure which I’m very fortunate and grateful for.”

Dan and Andy set a target of £1,000 and have exceeded that goal, raising a total of £2,254.

Dan will be handing a cheque to the Barnsley Hospital Charity next week when he returns from his adventure.
