In October 2013 I was on Safari in Tanzania and ventured to the foothills of Kilimanjaro where I thought it would be a good idea to try to raise some money for charity and reach the summit on September 11th 2013 (my 40th birthday).  Once I got back to the UK I approached one of my oldest school friends, David Rosie, who I’d gone all the way through school with (both Junior and High School).  Fortunately he didn’t really take much persuading even when I told him the 40% success rate of reaching the summit.

Johnogroat Journal ran an article on our trip, which you can see here.
