On Monday morning 13 th 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 www.velindrefundraising.com 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!
