Personal message:

Thank you for visiting the Kilimanjaro Christmas Challenge sponsorship page.

The last time I tried something like this I found out that mountaineering is actually quite hard!  As many of you will know, in 2004, a group of 10 broke the Guinness World Record for the Highest Altitude Formal Dinner Party ever held (at 6805 metres). It was tough and three suffered badly from altitude related illnesses.

This challenge is not as high, but at 5,900 metres (just short of 20,000 ft) it is certainly no walk in the park.  This time six friends are heading to Kilimanjaro and again I am doing it for Marie Curie.  I will be carrying my trusty dinner suit, table and chairs and the usual Christmas Dinner paraphenalia.

Why do this?  Well, it's an adventure for sure, but I am also passionate about the work that Marie Curie carries out across the country.  They and their nurses work tirelessly to ensure that people who are dying can do so with dignity in their own homes, surrounded by their own comforts and family.

I have the utmost respect for the Marie Curie nurses and the work that they do. Not being qualified I am helping in the best way I can - by helping to pay for them. If you feel the same, you can help too - even a small donation makes a big difference ... it might just pay for someone's last 5 minutes of care.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Marie Curie Cancer Care will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Please help in any way you can.

Thank you (for last time, this time and maybe the next time too!).
