Summit Mt Kilimanjaro

Why we need your help

In response to the letter by Lucy Johnson, CEO Army Flying Museum and the “Help us to Fly High” campaign asking for donations, Col (Retd) Paul Edwards will aim to summit Mt Kilimanjaro in September 2021 in order to raise funds.  The money raised will be split equally between the Army Flying Museum and the Historic Army Aircraft Flight (HAAF) Trust because the financial effects of COVID-19 have hit both. 

At 19,340 ft, Mt Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.  Altitude sickness is the greatest risk in climbing Kilimanjaro. 

His personal challenge involves summiting Mt Snowdon at least 3 times (including once by night), Scafell Pike at least twice and the same for Ben Nevis, before attempting Mt Kilimanjaro 09 to 23 September and after the decent to dive off the coast on compressed air to a depth below 100ft.   His son John (living and working in another country) will join him in Tanzania for the Kilimanjaro climb “to pick up any road-kill”.   You can donate to this challenge on:    

On Mountain dates in the UK

  • Snowdon: 25,26,27 May.  23,24 August.
  • Scafell Pike: 14,15,16 June
  • Ben Nevis:  27,28,29 July

In the event UK Government COVID restrictions prevent departure in September the final part of this challenge will be delayed to a date when it is subsequently able to go ahead and his package has a contingency for this.
