My story

[p]For 2017 I set myself a personal challenge to climb up Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m). After day one of training Harriet Spalding spontaneously decided to join me. We are both self funding the whole trip which means every penny raised is going directly to our chosen charities. My charity is the Aplastic Anaemia Trust. [/p][p]In 2001 my Grandpa Brian died from Aplastic Anaemia a rare but serious blood disorder, where the bone marrow fails to produce essential blood cells. [/p][p][span=color: #000000;]The Aplastic Anaemia Trust is the only charity in the UK dedicated solely to research into aplastic anaemia and the support of patients and their families. Gran Sue and others have personally benefitted from their amazing support.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000000;][i]Thanks in large part to the work of the Trust, guidelines for AA care have improved throughout the UK and the disease is now well recognised by the haematology community. Additionally, the prognoses of those patients with the disease are no longer so bleak; 25 years ago, no more than 3 in 10 AA patients survived for a year, but today as many as 8 in 10 will be restored to a good quality of life.[/i][/span][/p][p][span=color: #000000;][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Kilimanjaro[/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #000000;][b][/b][b][/b]Mt Kilimanjaro is 5,895m high, and the trek will take 7 days (5 ½ days up, 1 ½ days down) with between 6-9 hours trekking a day with the summit day set to take between 12-14 hours. Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain, and the world's highest stand alone mountain.[/span][span=color: #000000;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/p][p]Thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Charlie x[/p]
