Kilimanjaro Climb for the Blind Veterans UK

October 2016

The company would like to congratulate our Managing Director Jim O'Toole on his successfully reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro at 8.25am on Friday 14th  Oct . 

Jim O’Toole - “The attached photo was taken on the summit at Uhuru Peak – a height of 5,895 metres / 19,340 feet. Having set off at 10.30pm the previous evening when the temperature was minus 17 C it was a welcome surprize to find that by the time I had reached the summit it had “warmed up” to 2 C. 

In the meantime I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and encouragement and also for the donations towards the Blind Veterans UK project.  My target for Blind Veterans U.K was £8,000 and I’m delighted to let you know that with Gift Aid just under £8,500 was donated. I would therefore like to thank everyone who donated and helped achieve the target for this very worthy cause, I know the Veterans will be very grateful for your generous support.”
