“We made it” – Mike & Lizzie Deed celebrate raising £15k for Hospice after scaling Africa’s highest mountain

Geoquip’s Mike Deed and his daughter Lizzie have good reason to celebrate after raising £15,000 in a momentous climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

The pair were part of a six-strong team raising funds for St Helena Hospice in Colchester, and together they faced sleep deprivation, combined with mental and physical exhaustion, as well as coping with temperatures from +30oC to a snowy -15 oC.

Monies raised will go towards the Hospice’s funds for helping families in need. To add to Mike and Lizzie’s final fundraising total, please visit https://doris-stringer-1930-2015.muchloved.com/fundraising/events/194105719
