    Default Help For Heroes - Kilimanjaro

    Hi all.... Not expecting anything, but it doesn't hurt to spread the word in here.

    I am climbing Kilimanjaro in a couple of weeks, at the beginning of October 2016

    I am doing this in aid of Help For Heroes, and have so far raised a total of almost 4500

    It's a huge challenge for me, having done nothing like this before, but I am looking forward to trying

    If anyone has a few 'spare' pennies, then my just giving link is here....
    https://www.justgiving.com/fundraisi...ganKilimanjaro

    Kilimanjaro summit is 5,895 metres or 19,341 feet high.... the biggest likely problem (other than sleeping in tents!!) is altitude sickness, as at that height the air is very thin.

    Appreciate any help at all...many thanks

    Blimey, good luck Simon. It's on my bucket list too but so far I've only managed a fly-by. The worry I'd have is the altitude, I've been close to 4000m and you can certainly feel it. Watch out for Leopards!

    Thanks Kyodo - great pic! I am certainly getting a little nervous as the date gets closer... will let you know how it went.

    They may well do. Will talk with the other members of the committee and get back to you, Simon
