Mount Kilimanjaro Charity Climb
June 2017, two of my sons George and Bernie set off to climb Mount Kilimanjaro 5,895m above sea level (we are from Portsmouth - which is less than 3 metres [9.8 ft] above sea level). Here is a short video of their experience, the only surviving video diary - unfortunately all of the other video diaries did not save correctly and were sadly wiped. They raised just over £2500 for Alzheimer's, a condition both my parents (their grandparents) were diagnosed with shortly before. Both George and Bernie extend a massive thank you to all of their guides and friends they made along the way.
In Tanzania, an estimated 1,300,000 children are orphans due to HIV. This Christmas we sent £1000 worth of ewan the dream sheep to the Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre in hope that they could provide some kind of comfort.
The Kilimanjaro Orphanage Centre is a registered organisation located in Tanzania. They have been helping within the community for over 15 years in a variety of areas including people affected by HIV, orphaned children, and those in need of treatment for disease.
