Keen adventurers are being asked to raise cash for a children’s cancer charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Volunteers at the Earls Barton-based NC TLC Trust are appealing for 20 people to take part in the challenge next February in a bid to raise more than £30,000 for children with tumours, leukaemia and other cancers.
The charity was set up in 2008 by Janet Walker-Smith, from Earls Barton, after her son TJ underwent treatment for leukaemia.
During the last five years the trust has grown into an award-winning charity, which has gone from supporting five children and their families to now helping 68.
It’s run by a team of volunteers, including events manager, Gemma Martin, 20, who is among those who will travel to Tanzania next year to take part in the trek.
She said: “We are in desperate need of climbers and supporters. The money raised will enable us to continue our charity and have the funds to set up a hospital buddies scheme and complete our children’s wish lists.”
The climb takes place from February 21 to March 5, 2014. The trip will also include a community project and a safari. For further details visit www.nctlctrust.com.
