"I signed up to climb Kilimanjaro with Penny Appeal after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm. I had a rare second chance to do something good whilst pushing myself. The trek was tough but having a goal helped me through dark times and gave me focus. The staff were amazing and a good laugh. I was worried about raising £4,500 but I had support all the way from the fundraising Manager, which allowed me to achieve well beyond my target.
I raised over £16,000 in the end. Most importantly I have made friends for life and have memories that will never fade".
