Have your say

AGE IS just a number for adrenalin junkies Dee Hewitt and Connor Frankenthal.

Daredevil pensioner Dee, 78, from West Park, and fearless schoolboy Connor Frankenthal, 12, from Alwoodley, will abseil from the top of the University of Leeds’ Parkinson Building on August 17.

The duo are raising money for Oxfam, and calling on others to join them.
