Bonkers duo Hayley Myles and Charlotte ‘Ming’ Wingrove are climbing Mount Kilimajaro. Yes we think they’re mad, but we’re wishing them all the very best of luck.
Here’s what they’ve got to say!
We are going to attempt to climb Africaâ€™s highest mountain!!!! Kilimanjaro is the highest free standing mountain in the world sat on the African continent at 5896m.
We could be sponsored to walk, swim or even sit in a tub of baked beans without too much discomfort. But unless youâ€™re allergic to tomatoes, whereâ€™s the adventure in that. Climbing at this high an altitude is like hitting your head against a brick wall.
The charity we have chosen to support is one close to my familyâ€™s heart. Emma was an ordinary, fun loving teenager who was tragically struck down by cancer just days after her 16th birthday. The charity was set up in her memory.
August 2011 â€“ it seems a long time way but we have two more mountains to climb before we can get up to Kili. In the meantime we need to;
1.Â Â Â Â Â Reach the Â£3,790 target and we can only do that with your help and support!
2.Â Â Â Â Get physically and mentally fit for this challenge!
So all thatâ€™s left to say from us isÂ THANK YOU ALL so much for your support!
Lots of LoveÂ Â Â Hayley and CharlotteÂ xx
