Dragon nears Kili summit

BUSINESSMAN Duncan Bannatyne is nearing a mountain summit in his bid to raise cash for wounded soldiers.

The Dragon’s Den star, 62, who lives at Wynyard, is climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, with a team of 20 other people, including soldiers who have lost their limbs, to raise funds for amputee charity Pilgrim Bandits.

The team started the climb on Friday and were preparing to set off on the final leg of their hike earlier today.
