My story

[p]UPDATE: I made it! Thank you all so much for your generous support. It was an incredibly tough challenge and the altitude was brutal but it was an unbelievable experience. And yes - I have had a coffee and a bath now! :)[/p][p][br][/p][p]I'm climbing to 5,895m (that's the top) of Kilimanjaro in June in aid of amazing homeless charity Whitechapel Mission. Apart from the climb itself, it's going to be nine days without wifi, espresso or hot showers, as we sleep in tents the whole way up and down. [/p][p]Working in trendy east London, the gap between people who have a lot and who don't have anything is pretty stark and Whitechapel's mission (see what I did there?) is to make sure everyone who comes through their doors feels respected and valued. I've been lucky enough to see the difference this amazing small charity makes first-hand, and would really appreciate anything you can give them in support. [/p][p]I'm funding my trip myself, so every penny you give goes directly to this good cause. [/p]
