About

I'm a senior lecturer at the Manchester institute of Education, University of Manchester. I live in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, UK and do a lot of walking... see also my blog at http://214wainwrights.wordpress.com .

Event details

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro

After several years' walking I have learned to appreciate the importance of search and rescue teams. No one expects to get into trouble on the hills, but it can happen to anyone, and then search and rescue teams can be all that stand between life and death. Yet all the teams are made up of volunteers and supported entirely by donations. It can cost around £30,000 - £40,000 a year to run these services.

To support thel Calder Valley Search and Rescue team, from 25th July - 6th August I will be in Tanzania, climbing Kilimanjaro as part of an expedition. At 5,895 metres (19,341 feet), Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world.

Please support me in this foolhardy quest and help raise money vital for the provision of search and rescue around Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley. I hope to raise at least £1,500 through my efforts. Thank you!
