Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update for 2020 Kilimanjaro Fundraisers

Last updated 10:00 14th July 2020

We really hope that you and your family are well and staying safe.


We hope you're excited to get out of lockdown and reach the Roof of Africa in 2021!


We appreciate that you will have questions about the effects of COVID-19 on your fundraising or the challenge itself so we have updated the FAQ below. 


For those of you that are still working towards your target just a reminder that:


Your first fundraising deadline is on the 31st August 2020 for £1,250. If we don't hear from you before the deadline and you haven't hit your target we will not hold a place for you on your trip. This half of the fundraising is required now more than ever to enable us to support vulnerable people in Kenya through this difficult time where clean water, good hygiene and knowledge about handwashing are crucial.


If you are worried about hitting your target we want to hear from you now. Contact one of us below and we promise to help you find a way through your concerns and put you at ease. 


You make the magic happen and the whole team is here to support you so please get in touch with whomever you like. If you'd prefer that a family member/friend speaks to us on your behalf, that is fine by us. We are happy for you to share our contact details with them.
