The daughter of a Kettering volunteer has raised £2,000 for the local Samaritans branch after climbing Mount Kilimanjiro.
Chantal Pettican climbed the dormant Tanzanian volcano in a gruelling six-day trek.
The feat not only saw her reach the summit of the world’s highest freestanding mountain, but she also raised £2,150 for Kettering Samaritans.
Chantal said: “I trekked along the Rongai route, taking in some of Tanzania’s most spectacular sights, before battling against a gruelling 10-hour ascent and altitude sickness to reach the summit of the world’s highest freestanding mountain at 5,895m above sea level.
“It was a once in a lifetime experience and I’m proud to have made it to the summit while raising £2,150 for Kettering Samaritans.”
When she got to the summit, Chantal had her photo taken wearing a Samaritans tabard.
The money raised will go towards running costs for the branch.
