Jambo! Welcome to Velindre Walks. This Blog has now finished as we completed our Brains SA Captains Climb of Kilimanjaro in September 2010. We are all incredibly proud of our achievement on the mountain but more importantly the massive fundraising effort for Velindre Cancer Centre. Once again I'd like to thank the generosity of our friends, family, colleagues, suppliers, customers and everyone who donated either their time or money.
If you are planning your own Kilimanjaro adventure, I hope that you find this blog helpful and if you have any questions then you can find me on twitter as @WelshITGirl
For information regarding Lung Cancer research or Velindre Cancer Centre, especially if you’d like to join one of their fundraising adventures, then please visit http://www.velindrefundraising.com
If it’s just beer you’re interested in then where better than http://www.sabrain.com ?? A personal thanks to Brains Brewery for giving me the opportunity to immerse myself into this once in a life time experience.
I don't suppose we'll ever manage a full reunion of the whole group so here's a pic of everyone (apart from Gareth unfortunately, who took this photo).
I'm posting this 12 months on from the night that we made our summit attempt, this time last year we would have been 1 hour into the summit climb, which started at midnight on 13th September 2010. I would eventually reach the summit at approx 8am returning to Kibo Huts in time for lunch at 12pm, exhausted! I feel that the timing of this final post is a fitting ending to the blog.
