Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On August 23rd 2013 I am going on a 10 day trip to Tanzania, to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. The peak of the mountain is 5895 metres (19,340 feet) above sea level. I will be climbing it over 6 days. It is a big challenge, but one I intend to complete. I am funding the trip myself, so every penny that I raise goes to my chosen charity.

I have chosen to raise money for Greyhound Rescue West of England. They do a brilliant job rescuing and rehoming Greyhounds and Lurchers.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
