A St Albans IT consultant has climbed five summits of Everest for the hospital that saved his brother.
Andy Reynolds completed the Everest Base Camp Trek this month, climbing to 5,546 metres.
He said: “What kept me motivated was knowing that it was raising a significant amount of money, and that my brother is facing a much tougher mountain of his own.”
His brother Martin was treated at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington after a scooter accident.
He had damaged his spinal cord and fractured his neck, requiring an eight hour operation.

The care Martin received was what motivated Andy to raise money for Imperial Health Charity, which supports St Mary’s.
