No mean feat, and plasters for his feet!

No mean feat, and plasters for his feet!

Nine days, a 6,000-meter climb, five climatic zones, and the physiological changes that the body experiences above 2,500 meters, that’s what is facing Jamie, as he climbs Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Teens Unite.

Jamie is the Director at the multi award-winning Future Group, who we are delighted to introduce as our latest Corporate Partner

After deciding on the challenge, Jamie thought about doing the climb for Charity.  Teens Unite were on Loughton High Street, as part of our awareness raising campaign, and Jamie stopped to talk to one of our volunteers.  Knowing a little of what we did and knowing that we were local to him and his team, we were very fortunate that Jamie decided to do the climb for us.  Now, knowing more about our work, and feeling a real affinity for what we do, Jamie has roped in the whole team at Future Group, and we are delighted that they’ll be partnering with us for the next two years, continuing to raise funds and awareness.

So, as Jamie takes on the climb of his life, facing bushlands, rainforests, heather and moorland, an alpine desert and the ferocious cold and artic conditions at the summit, he’s taken delivery of blister plasters and he is in training to deal with the effects of the altitude, we ask you, please, to get behind him, and offer him your support.  He set himself a target of £1,000 which his incredible supporters smashed within less than a week, so now he has set his sights on £2,000, all of which will help us to support young people fighting cancer to live their best life, while others search for a cure.
