Doncaster business leaders tackle Kilimanjaro for Cancer Research UK

With a £10,000 target in mind, they have pledged to match pound for pound on the first £4000 of donations.

Six businessmen from Doncaster are currently on Day 5 climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, the world highest freestanding mountain (19431ft).

The six include Karl Broadbent: Bawtry Paintball Fields, Scott Mullen; Now Cosmetic Surgery and Nick and Oliver Woodcock; Danum Windows along with Wes Lancaster and Lee Birbeck also from Doncaster. They are hoping to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research UK with the first £4,000 of donations Now Cosmetic Surgery and Danum Windows will match pound for pound. So every £1 donated will become £2 (add GiftAid and it’ll be even more!). 

With no training due to busy lives and injuries etc. they are giving it a go whilst supporting a fantastic charity in the process. They are currently preparing to set off at midnight to reach the summit which is another 7 hours uphill. 

All six of the men have experienced close family members with cancer, so Cancer Research UK felt like the perfect fit.

Photos of their challenge will be posted on social media and on their JustGiving page below:

All donations welcome. Thank you.
