I've been cleared by the doctor, my hiking boots have been broken in, and I'm stockpiling Twix bars for my backpack - it's time to climb!
This isn't something I ever thought I'd type (or even want to do) but I've set myself an amazing challenge; to reach the summit of the highest mountain in Africa and the highest single free-standing mountain in the world.
I'll be doing it with some incredible people, for an amazing cause and would really appreciate your help in raising much-needed funds for a school in Tanzania, providing an inclusive education for children with special needs.
If my posts or chat over the years has ever been useful or just made you smile, please consider donating. I'm covering all my own costs - all money raised goes to those in need.
