Jo conquers Kilimanjaro

Jo conquers Kilimanjaro

Supporter Jo Wright has just got back to the UK after successfully climbing Africa's highest mountain.

Jo completed the eight-day climb of Mt Kilimanjaro and has raised more tham £6,000.

She took on the 19,341 feet above sea level ascent with five friends to celebrate one of the group’s birthdays.  The dormant volcano in Tanzania is 19,341 above sea level, and the world’s highest free-standing mountain.

She said this week: "I'm shattered but thrilled."

She started the climb in temperatures reaching 40C but had to contend with the cold and altitude sickness as she reached the summit.

She said: “The Cardiomyopathy Association provides the most fantastic care and support to families dealing with the condition. It relies on donations and with your help, I would love to help them.  I have paid for this trip personally including for all the unbelievable amount of kit we need! This means that every penny, euro or dollar I raise, will go to CMA.”
