Hope for Tanzania

Duffield Carnival 2012

Published 01 July 2012

On Saturday June 23 we manned a stall at our Derbyshire village carnival for the third consecutive year. We concentrated on two themes this year; firstly the difference that sponsoring a child at the Tuishime School makes to a child's life, giving them the possibility of an excellent education and prospects of a better life for the cost of £1 per day. The second theme was the Climb Kili challenge which was an attempt to climb the 5895m height of Kilimanjaro during the afternoon. Despite serious effort from many people and heroic endeavours from a few we only reached the 4025m mark, although this was in the moorland zone where oxygen levels were starting to significantly decrease. The point of the second theme was to promote the Roof of Africa 2013 climb that Martin Grosvenor is organising in July/August.
