INTREPID lawyer Graeme Quar is getting ready to take part in his latest challenge to improve lives in Africa.

From the end of the month Graeme, who owns and runs Graeme Quar and Co in Fareham, will be among 17 people spending a month walking the Simien Mountains in Ethiopia in aid of the Send A Cow charity.

He has already received generous pledges from companies and individuals across the south, and will cover the costs of the administrative fees and air flights himself.

He aims to raise £2,500 for the charity, which provides livestock to impoverished families in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda, helping them improve farming techniques to become self sufficient and generate income from surplus food.

He said: ‘Until recently my walking experiences were from the car to the office and back.

‘We’ll be trekking for up to 10 hours a day along steep and narrow mountain paths, so I suspect my legs and head will be feeling it somewhat, especially at height when the air is thin.’
