Story

For some time I have wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro; its' beauty and breathtaking size has always inspired me and set me a challenge that I had promised myself to achieve by the time I'm 30. At first I had the time but didn't have the money. Then when I had the money I didn't have the time. Now I have neither! But I will not let this stop me! For those of you who don't know, Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and is an impressive 5895m above sea level. The trip has been paid for by myself and just to make it absolutely clear, all money raised goes directly to charity, not to fund any part of the trip.The charity I have chosen to raise money for is Nystagmus Network; a small UK charity run by individuals. It is a very worthy charity which will benefit hugely from our support. So on the 5th January 2012, I will be embarking on my journey. It won't be easy as I won't be able to shower for at least a week, I'll be living off cold baked beans and tins of sweetcorn, I'll have no access to the Internet so won't be able to keep updated on Leicester City's progress up the Premier League (!) and I anticipate my big ol' clown feet to be coated in bruises and blisters! For all these reasons above, it would mean so much to me to have your support every step of the journey. Please dig deep and donate as much or as little as you can. Many thanks to you all. Viral
