Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2017, in memory of our brother Stuart, who died in 2006. Africa, and in particularly Kenya, has always been very special to our family and we hold fond memories of us visiting this amazing continent.
We previously raised money in 2007, whilst holding 'StuGig', to help the Kariandusi School Trust, this is a charity set up for the advancement of education amongst children in rural Kenya. Our money enabled us to help build the 'Stuart Dines' library, which now many children use at the Simba School.
To mark his 11th year anniversary we are attempting to climb 5895m to the Kilimanjaro summit, this is our first experience of hiking..... challenged accepted!
We are raising money to once again help children in Kenya access education and we will be personally handing over the donations to the Simba school when visiting in February. We also wanted to help children closer to home, so we will also be donating half of the funds raised to EACH, to help the ' The nook appeal' and build a new children's hospice in East Anglia.
All donations will be greatly appreciated and we hope we can make a difference to young children's lifes.
