This week marked just six weeks to go until I fly out of rain-drenched London to the (hopefully) warming heat of Africa and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro.

The countdown to Kilimanjaro is on.
In exactly 114 days I will be on a plane heading towards Africa, readying myself to climb the tallest mountain on the continent.

As some of you may remember (and for those who don’t know at all) this August I am climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro for the Charity Dig Deep.
We have a LOT of money to fundraise (a minimum of £70,000) and a LONG way to go.
So, I thought I’d shed some light on some of the events/activities we are doing to help bring the pennies in…..

As some of you may remember, a little while ago I posted a blog about how I’ve decided to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, this coming August.
Two months later I am still determined as ever to accomplish this task, all in the name of charity (and, well, to tick one item off my ‘bucket list’).

From 7.30PM til midnight tonight I sat down and watched the BBC’s ‘Children in Need‘ Appeal Show.
This is an annual fundraising event that has been going on, in telethon format, since 1980. And since 1985 the official mascot of Children in Need has been Pudsey the bear.
Children in Need is the BBC UK’s corporate charity. It provides grants to UK projects which focus on disadvantaged children and young people. Children living in poverty, suffering from severe disabilities and life altering illnesses, children who suffer abuse of all kinds.
Every year the BBC hosts an Appeal Show which provides entertainment from a wide range of celebrities, and encourages you and me -the public- to donate money to this worthy cause.
