Who are we doing this mammoth feat for?

Our group of dedicated tax professionals and friends are doing this in aid of the two UK tax charities, TaxAid and Tax Help for Older People. The sponsorship money will go to the charities' Bridge the Gap campaign, which is split equally between the two tax charities. The two tax charities help vulnerable people on low incomes with their tax issues. The people the tax charities help cannot afford to pay for professional advice and have nowhere else to turn. See some examples here.

What does the challenge involve?

Our team have signed up to complete the #KiliTax2022 sponsored challenge to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro - with a height of nearly 6,000m it is the highest mountain in Africa and highest free-standing mountain in the world - from base to summit you have to ascend over 5.000m (nearly 17,000 feet). They are each spending months improving their fitness, culminating in the 11-day trip to Tanzania, ascending the mountain using the Lemosha route, from the tropical rain forest, through debilitating altitude sickness inducing heights to arctic conditions.

Covid led to the challenge being deferred for 2 years, but Action Challenge is ready to take the team up this formidable mountain to help meet our ultimate goal of raising vital money for the tax charities.

Who is paying for the trek?

The trekkers: we are each paying for our trip, so that all the fundraising, bar a small amount to Justgiving, goes to help the Tax Charities.

What's the target?

Overall £2/foot up that mountain! With a climb of almost 17,000 feet that's £34,000 target.

Each of the 7 trekkers is aiming to raise at least £2,000 - ideally more - see their links below. The team as a whole is seeking general sponsorship from people and organisations connected to tax (isn't everyone!) with a target of £20,000 to help meet the overall target of £34,000.

Each of the trekkers is making a significant personal commitment. Please consider either sponsoring one of us or the group as a whole.
