Fundraising Challenge

Derek and Claire are amazing and are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to support Headway Somerset.

They are hoping to raise lots of money for our wonderful charity This is what they had to say ‘We were looking for a real challenge and think we have found one. It’s a long way up, 5,895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level! So along with a long walk we also have the altitude to contend with and of course 6 nights on the floor under canvas!’

Claire’s story: I am a Trustee and Vice Chair of Headway Somerset. This is a charity that is close to my heart as both my cousin and my Dad suffered a brain injury following an accident. Sadly, my Dad passed away on 11 October 2019. I have always loved hills and mountains and had hoped one day to be able to attempt to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. I just needed a reason to do it and that reason is Headway Somerset! Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page and we hope to raise lots of money for the wonderful charity, Headway Somerset. We were looking for a real challenge and think we have found one. It’s a long way up, 5,895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level!
