TWO firefighters from Andover have climbed the height of the Twin Towers in memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11.

Donna Bowsher and Shaun Winter, who are both based in the town, took on the challenge on Saturday morning, climbing the equivalent of 110 floors.

They did it to remember the 343 firefighters that lost their lives 18 years ago when two planes hit the World Trade Centre in New York.

The pair were also raising money for the Fire Fighters Charity, an organisation that supports those who have been injured on the job, as well as firefighters that are ill or in need of psychological help.

Donna, who completed the climb in 43 minutes, says that she did no training for the event, and wishes she did.

"We had had full fire kit on with breathing apparatus on our back and we climbed 110 floors," she told the Advertiser shortly after completing the epic climb.

"I'm knackered but proud and very hot!

"We've never done it before, and didn't really train that much for it. Shaun did more training than me."

The duo have raised £550 so far (at the time of writing), and if you want to donate, you can by following this link:
