Onwards and upwards to a world record for youth aid by Warminster man

Wiltshire Times: Keith scales the ladder Keith scales the ladder

Warminster roofer Keith Saunders smashed the world record for ladder climbing at Salisbury Fire Station at the weekend, climbing the equivalent of 13,239m on a ladder in a 24-hour marathon.

The 46-year-old from Copheap Lane, Warminster, broke the previous record of 13,120m to raise funds for Raleigh International, a charity which encourages young people to volunteer and work with communities living in poverty.

Mr Saunders said: “I’m physically and emotionally drained. I’m going to spend the next couple of days recovering.

“Thanks to everyone who supported me I have now raised £1,800.”

In September he is going to north Borneo with the charity to help youngsters.
