In exactly two weeks times, 11 local men and women will be embarking on the trip to Tanzania to climb the tallest mountain in Africa all in aid of Julian House.
For months, they’ve been training and fundraising as hard as they could, all with full time jobs, families and Christmas in the middle.
The team, made up of two men and nine women, will be climbing the mountain across three and a half days, camping in tents on the way up. Their ascent will take them across Kilimanjaro’s rich montane forests filled with amazing flora and fauna, across its other-worldly high altitude desert, past Kilimanjaro’s cathedral high glaciers, before reaching the crater’s rocky rim and summiting the iconic Uhuru Peak, 5896 metres high.
They will descend over the course of one and a half days before reaching the bottom and returning home for a well deserved rest.
It’s a huge feat and the team have been working incredibly hard to get prepared. They’ve done amazingly well and we’re wishing them all the best for their trek.
