Shika founder Michelle Parlett is leading a team of 7 to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in February. The team comprising of Anna Chard, Dr David Steel, Chris Evans, Silje Einerkjear, and Neal Granville will start their ascent on February 2nd. Fingers crossed having summited they will return from the mountain on February 8th.  The team are putting themselves through sub zero temperatures, hikes of up to 15 hours a day and long spells of altitude sickness to raise £10,000, enough to fund our vital after school programme to a whole year.

 

The team will visit the Shika programme on Friday 1st February prior to the climb in order to meet the children that their climb will support.  Keep checking in to view their progress.  If you would like sponsor the team please do so here
