Nazim is taking fundraising to new heights with Ben Nevis charity climb
A brave fundraiser from Bradford is climbing Britain’s highest mountain, despite suffering from vertigo.
Nazim Ali, general secretary of the Muslim organisation Naqshbandia Active Development Association, is tackling Ben Nevis on Saturday.
He hopes to raise money for the Bradford-based international charity Human Relief Foundation, to be spent on helping Syrian refugees.
Mr Ali, 32, pictured during a training session at Ilkley’s Cow and Calf rocks, said he had been to Syria in the past and had been appalled by the levels of violence seen there during recent months.
He said: “I am greatly saddened by what is currently happening in the country, so I thought I’d make my small contribution. Thousands of lives have already been lost in the violence and the death toll is rising daily.”
Mr Ali, who lives in Manningham and is also a familiar face on the junior football scene in Bradford, has raised nearly £6,000 for humanitarian causes by running three marathons and climbing Mount Snowdon.
