My Travel Story

by: KATE HEGARTY Start Date: Aug 4, 2016 - End Date: Aug 3, 2017
I will be climbing Mount Kenya on Monday 29th May (nearly £17,000 ft)  Our group will all be donating £1,000  to the Africa Adventures Foundation as part of our contract.(Mount Kenya Charity Challenge 2017).The total cost of my week in Africa including flights/ transfers/ accomodatatiion /equipment / insurance / vaccinations and the £1000 for charity is £3,105. I am hoping to raise £1,000 to donate for charity work and fund the rest myself. The "Programme Fee" of £1,000 which you will see on my cost calculator goes directly to the African Adventures Foundation  which will be used towards the construction of desperately needed new classrooms at schools in Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar.It will also help to create feeding programmes for children living in Africa whose only meal a day comes from the projects.

I hope that my contacts friends and family will support me to succesfully complete this fundraising project.I will keep you all updated on my progress and you will receive many pictures of  the Mount Kenya Charity Challenge. Thank you for your support!
