A TINGEWICK student will be swapping the green fields of Bucks for the snowy slopes of Kilimanjaro next month, when she embarks on a climb for the charity Smile Train.

Kitty Norwell, aged 20, who is studying photography at Bournemouth University, aims to raise £1.500 for the charity which carries out corrective cleft palate surgery all over the world.

For as little as £150 per child, Smile Train can carry out basic cleft palate repair surgery that tranforms children’s lives. It says there are millions of children with unrepaired clefts in developing countries.

Ms Norwood, who works during her holidays for video production company Mallard Productions in Paulerspury, is funding the cost of the trip herself, so all the money raised will go to charity.

She’s being helped towards her target by sponsorship from Dr Selvaraj Balaji of The Gallery Dental Centre in Buckingham and his customers.
