Partner Tamsin Cooper has tackled the dizzying heights of Mt Kilimanjaro in a bid to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The climb, which scales 5,895 metres to the summit, was described by Tamsin as ‘one of the hardest physical challenges I’ve ever undertaken.’ This is no exaggeration for the active and sporty Tamsin who is already a keen walker.
Altitude, lack of sleep and extreme cold all served to make the challenge that bit harder as Tamsin, alongside friend and former colleague Wendy Forrester, trekked on to the top.
Both ladies have been delighted by the support of friends and co-workers who have contributed to the fundraising, helping them achieve over £2,500 in donations.
On their reasons for choosing Macmillan, Tamsin said, ‘the charity does such wonderful work to support people at a difficult time and we’re proud to be able to help contribute to such a worthy cause.’
