Two friends who climbed the highest mountain in Morocco are setting their sights even higher by preparing to scale Mount Kilimanjaro. Mohsin Alli, 50, and Mehfuz Master, 50, are taking on the mammoth challenge in February in support of the East Lancashire Hospice and NHS Christie’s Foundation Trust. The pals decided to test their mountain legs after Mr Alli's wife, Farida, died from cancer in June, aged just 48. Mohsin said: "The community team from East Lancashire Hospice took all my worries away. In October the friends, both from Blackburn, successfully climbed Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa at 4,167m.
