As we look ahead to 2019, it seems timely to look back at one of our fantastic fund raisers who raised £60,000 by tackling Kilimanjaro - I wonder what heights we might scale this year?
The faces of pure relief on the summit of Kilimanjaro!
When three colleagues met Doddie in February 2018 at a charity function and said they were going to raise money for the Foundation, he wondered if it was more beer talk than real talk.
As the picture shows they did it and wow, what a tremendous effort!
Central on the picture is Lloyd Gooding, MD of the Gooding Group, who following – to use his words – ‘a midlife crisis’ thought it was about time for a physical challenge having hit the ‘Big 5-0’ in 2017.
Seven nights under canvas was not his wife’s idea of fun (no comments) so he asked two colleagues, Ashley Carter and Mike Southway, who were delighted to join him.
Their party was organised by Action Challenge who they tell us they could not recommend strongly enough, the "In Country team" being particularly helpful.
Many thanks to Lloyd and co for their amazing efforts.
