Reaching new heights for charity

Reaching new heights for charity

February 11, 2013

On March 13, 2013, sixteen delegates from Appco Group UK’s Support division will be taking on the challenge of a lifetime.

In support of one of Appco Group Support’s charity partners, Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), the delegates will be taking on the dizzy heights of Mount Kilimanjaro.

VSO is the world's leading independent international development organisation that sends experienced volunteers to share skills and save lives in the worlds poorest countries.

All sixteen of these brave climbers have been fundraising tirelessly as well as training in order to prepare themselves for this demanding but extremely exciting experience.

One delegate, Lawrence Lenzi, recently commented, “it’s getting close now, and I think the reality is starting to kick in that we will be spending six days climbing a mountain that is over five thousand meters high. It’s going to be a fantastic experience and all for a great cause – let’s hope the money we raise makes a huge difference to the volunteers that give up years of their lives every single year for people that are less privileged. Best of luck to everyone”.
