Story

Thanks for visiting our JustGiving page.

In 2012 the MADS trekked to Everest Base Camp (5,364 m / 17,598 ft).  In 2013 we climbed Kilimanjaro (5,895 m / 19,341 ft).  

Never again, we said.  

But the MADs are back.  In December 2016 we're climbing Chimborazo, Ecuador's highest mountain, to make it up over 6,000 metres / 20,000 feet for the first (and believe me the last) time.

Two of us live in Angola, where millions of landmines still remain a threat to civilians.  Please help us to support the vital clearance and educational programmes run there by the Mines Advisory Group (MAG)
