A pair of friends from Morley will be scaling new heights of fundraising when they take part in Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice’s first Kilimanjaro trek.
The gruelling mission will take place from December 26 2015 to January 32016 to raise vital cash for the hospices, which costs £4m a year to run.
And among the first to sign up are Nicola Cromack and Sasha Ingala will join the trek in memory of a friend, who was cared for at the hospices before she died last year.
Georgina Abbott, the hospice’s senior fundraising manager said: “We are thrilled to have Nicola and Sasha on our team of trekkers who will be tackling the world’s tallest and most iconic freestanding mountain in aid of Wheatfields Hospice. Their support will enable us to continue caring for people with incurable illnesses in the Leeds community. We would love to hear from any other enthusiastic people who are looking to take on a challenge in 2015.”
Places are limited on the trek which will involve reaching the summit at Uhuru Peak atop Kilimanjaro to see in the first sunrise of 2016.
