Why Did I Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

Why Did I Climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

In support of a good friend of mine who’s daughter sadly contracted meningitis and passed away, 18 of us decided to climb a mountain. We truly had no idea of the stir we’d cause and following we’d create, smashing the £60k fundraising target by 200% (and counting) and getting a lot of great coverage in local news across the Midlands. We also had no idea of just how hard it was going to be, as detailed in the Trek Blog they had me write (it can be read here if you don’t mind nonsensical ramblings and terrible travel tips: https://m.facebook.com/trekforgeorgie/

Georgie’s Gift was setup by Matt and Paula Hall in 2015 to provide support for children and families affected by meningitis, and has since been a key factor in the campaign to government for the roll out of vaccines across the UK, as well as having already given several “gifts” directly to those children who need it most.

Online Mortgage Advisor joined numerous businesses as an official sponsor of the trek and we’re delighted to contribute to such a fantastic cause. The support from various peers, colleagues and affiliates across the industry who have generously pledged their donations has been overwhelming, as both the charity and myself are extremely grateful.

We are of course not finished there – I’m running the 2017 London marathon which sits amongst a rich list of other exciting plans in the pipeline, so I’m sure you’ll hear more from the charity in the days, weeks and months to come.
