In the throes of a mid life crisis, Sanj and Jon had the crazy idea to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. Both too stubborn to question whether two middle aged men were really up to the challenge, they booked their flights and will be embarking on this tough yet amazing adventure on the 5th March 2018. They have decided to channel their endeavours into doing something great for others and when they were introduced to Spread a Smile they knew it was the perfect way to help. Spread a Smile is a charity that sends entertainers into paediatric wards of major hospitals. This is a way of helping young patients suffering from serious and sometimes terminal illnesses and brings much needed joy and laughter into their lives under such testing circumstances. 

We have fully funded this trip ourselves and every penny you donate will go to Spread a Smile.

Event details

Conquering Kilimanjaro!

Following the stunning Lemosho route to the roof of Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, this is one of the toughest, yet most exhilarating challenges a person can ever embark on. Over 8 days we will be climbing through forests, moorland and alpine desert to reach the highest point of Uhuru Peak (5895m). We're particularly looking forward to the final push on day 7 when we will trek 19km over about 15 hours!!! Please support us in raising money for a fantastic and truly worthwhile cause. Thanks.
