Kili for Canaan

On News Years Eve, I (Fiona) and one of our brilliant volunteers and friends, Marianne, will be jetting off to Tanzania to take on a six day trek to the ‘roof of Africa’. 

It was whilst summitting the Beeston Bump, Norfolk (63m above sea level), that we were inspired to embrace our mutual love of adventure and challenge, and conquer a slightly taller hill – Mount Kilimanjaro (5895m above sea level). When we started telling people what we were planning, many of you asked us who we were trekking in aid of. So we decided it would be fitting that whilst we were fulfilling one of our mutual dreams, we would also try to raise as much as we can to help some other young women, who haven’t been given the breadth of privilege and opportunity we have had in life, to realise their potential.

If you would like to keep up to date with our preparations and the trip itself we’ll be posting both here and on Mariannes blog, www.kiliforcanaan.wordpress.com.

And if you would like to make a donation you can do that through our giving page, https://my.give.net/kili4canaan
