Story

We did it! On Saturday 12th September 2009 at 7.30am I made the summit of Kili at Gillman's Point at 5,681m above sea level & at 9am Ben made it to Kili's highest point - Uhuru Peak at 5,895m! Even though I got altitude sickness the whole trip was totally amazing. All 11 in our group made it to the summit and our 6 guides & 31 porters were fantastic and made our 6 days (4 up and 2 down) totally unforgettable. Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored us... we can't believe we've raised so much money! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! :)
I can't believe the time has come, we go to Tanzania tonight (Sunday 6th Sept) which is also Ashley's anniversary (miss you lots Ash)! Thank you so much to everyone that has sponsored us... really thank you... check this space in 3 weeks when we return and we'll let you know how we got on... :) xx
I've wanted to do this for many years & finally the time is right! Yes... this September I am going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with my good friend Ben Randall.

I am doing this climb in memory of a very special person & friend Ashley Masella, who sadly passed away 2 years ago from a very rare type of cancer called Angio Sarcoma, which is why I want to raise money for the Sarcoma Trust.

Ben & I will leave London for Kilimanjaro on 6th September 2009 which will also be Ashley's 2nd anniversary. I will be thinking of Ashley every step i take climbing up that mountain.

Ashley was an amazingly brave lady who battled cancer for 2 years. She was such a positive person, such a wonderful friend, a great mother to her angel Lyden & loving wife to Brian. She really was such an inspiration, I miss her loads & think of her all the time. It was Ashley's 30th birthday on Sunday 7th June so we had a drink for her! Happy Birthday Ashley!

Like I said before Angio Sarcoma is a very rare & aggressive type of cancer & a lot more research needs to be done, its a very worthwhile cause & we'd like to try & raise as much money as possible for them.

We have also started a second fundraising page to raise money for a children's charity in Tanzania called Kids AId Tanzania which help 100 orphaned & disabled kids. This is another very worth while charity & you can find this fundraising page here... http://www.justgiving.com/ben-clodagh-kilimanjaro

Ben & I are funding this trip ourselves & 100% of the sponsorship money goes direct to the charity. If you could sponsor us we would be ever so greatful...

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: The Sarcoma Trust gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thanks so much to everyone who has kindly sponsored us so far, thank you for your support. From Clodagh & Ben :)
