Danny Boore, sales director for EAIS, has made it to the summit of Africa’s highest mountain as part of charity climb, Trek for Megan’s Challenge.
The team said it was an incredible experience and thanked all those who supported and donated. Megan’s Challenge has raised £11,000 to date which the charity uses to help less fortunate people.
For the Kilimanjaro trip, all of the costs of the flights, equipments and guides were covered by each challenger, so Boore detailed that 100% of donations will go to Megan’s Challenge and the good causes it supports.
Catering Insight reported on Boore’s run up to the climb earlier this year. He joked: “I live in Norfolk which is not exactly a perfect training ground for such an event as most of the time I’m below sea level.”
However, the reason behind the trip is very serious, as tragically his friend Stephen Thrower’s daughter Megan drowned in 2010, aged just 6, while on a family holiday.
Boore commented: “Megan’s Challenge was set up in order to not only remember Megan but also to try and generate something positive out of what was a devastating situation.
“Over the last few years it has been able to help lots of individuals as well as organisations, with donations raised for a wide range of challenges.”
Although the trip has finished, Boore urged that people are still able to make a donation. To make a donation click here.
