The Bates Family take on the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro to support MaaChild!
MaaChild is a small, local charity that work to champion and support underprivileged children from the Maasai communitiy who otherwise could not afford to go to high school.
In Kenya, it costs about £1500 to support a child through 4 years of education including food, books and anything else they might need to go to school. But this cost is often too high for many families so many children are forced to work with their parents or are married into other families.
We’ve got the gear, we’ve been training, walking, running and going to the gym. Now there’s only 4 weeks to go before the start of our big climb!
We will be climbing for 8 days to reach the summit, camping each night, drinking questionable water and dealing with a lack of facilities!
Please support us on this journey and help us reach our fundraising goals.

We are all now rested and recovered after our climb and enjoyed watching the eventful journey of the Comic Relief climbers from the comfort of our sofas last night! We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for your generous donations and support over the last few weeks and months - the Kilimanjaro team have raised a total of £8000 for MaaChild, who are hoping to support another 6 children start their education next year! Thank you, The Bates Family
