Reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro for Stick ‘n’ Step
08 November 2022
Two friends, who took on the challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, have smashed their fundraising target and raised over £13,900 for cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step.
Gavin, from Culcheth, and Debs, who lives in Altrincham, took on the challenge last month, with the aim of raising £10,000. Gavin’s youngest daughter, Amy, aged 12, has cerebral palsy and attends Stick ‘n’ Step’s centre in Runcorn for regular conductive education sessions.
Commenting on the friends’ achievement, Stick ‘n’ Step’s Community Fundraiser, Rhianna McDermott, said, “We are all in awe of the challenge that Gavin and Debs undertook and so grateful to them for their hard work, grit and commitment. We don’t receive any government funding and so we rely solely on donations and fundraising efforts of wonderful people like Gavin and Debs in order to provide our services to families across the region.”
