On Monday morning 13 September 2010 at around 6.30am, the  Captains Climb team reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro.  Extremely tired, cold but triumphant!   

It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, so worthy of the donations received.  On that note  I would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who supported me, my fellow trekkers in Team Hall, and the Stepping Stones appeal by donating. You helped spur me on when I felt like stopping, so thank you!  The climb has so far raised a staggering £300,000, which is amazing.


You can still help by purchasing the Official Captains Climb DVD which is out now priced at just £10.  To order your DVD please visit or call 029 2031 6211.  Alternatively, some of the Captains will be signing copies of the DVD's, so come along and pick up a copy...the perfect Chrismtas present or stocking filler!  

1st Dec: The Old Arcade, Cardiff from 7pm with Rob Howley & Warren Gatland

8 Dec: the Duke of Wellington, Cowbridge from 7pm with Ieuan Evans & Jonathan Humphreys


9 Dec: the Yard Bar & Kitchen, Cardiff from 7pm with Garin Jenkins and Bob Norster



The team are now focusing on reaching the target of £1m for Velindre Cancer Centre’s Stepping Stones Appeal, raising awareness about lung cancer and funding research.
