I have now been home for almost a month and I'm still trying to find the words to describe my Kilimanjaro adventure. So many people have asked me how it was and how I got on, but it is so difficult to put the actual experience of Kilimanjaro into words. I have to be honest it still all feels a little like a dream, an out of body experience and completely surreal.
On 15th September 2014, I will be heading off to Tanzania in preparation for the great Kilimanjaro adventure. My aim is to raise £1,500 for the trust and to have the experience of a lifetime. I've planned the trip with Exodus and will be joined by about 15 other people.
Following my initial visit to Ghana, the next 6 months were a blur of fundraising activities. Firstly, I did some craft courses, set up a studio in my flat and began creating handmade gifts for sale. With so many worthy charities competing for donations now, I felt that if people were actually getting something in return for their donations, we could raise so much more.
